For The Many Young Women
By Christina Hersh
I sit in the morning sun
Cradled in cushions
Crying into my coffee
This buttered toast stands for comfort
Rather than -a portion for a balanced meal-
I am grieving
The loss if innocence weighs heavy on my mind.
As I sit here in the sun, sipping coffee safely, I can’t help but feel … a little bit guilty.
For I have already made the journey from my brokenness to where I am today.
I want her to be the one cradled in cushions, sipping coffee in the sunshine.
I want her to feel comfortable in her body and mind.
To feel embraced and empowered by her womankind.
