Nervous- Daily Prompt

Nervous is the feeling 

A woman feels when 

She’s forced by society 

To be perfect

To stay young forever 

Or she will be replaced

Nervous because her

features are changing and

she may need to go under the 

Knife to be socially 


Nervous because 

She doesn’t have the 

Perfect relationship 

And the perfect family 

Women no need to be 

Nervous, perfection 

Doesn’t exist and the way 

We look after 25 years 

Of age is still beautiful

We are life in expression

and the gateway 

Of love and birth 

We can change nations 

Through breast milk 

and stop wars through 

our touch and hugs 

The pain left behind without 

our love proves we are love 

In action, our sons suffer 

When we are not around 

So our presence heals the 

Family, women we are the 

Foundation make no mistake

And think otherwise
