Call me insane, but I'm trapped.
In the confines of my house this time, not my mind.
"Because you're a girl", replays like a broken cassette tape.
Just bear it. Just breathe.
Eventually, you will be able to stretch your toes at the space you get.
I feel like my inexorable fate is to be bound to the restrictions of fear and refusal to admit that the baby is finally walking.
For my sanity, I will leave.
I will go travel, laugh and live my life. I will choose my own future and decide my own fate.
