So what? You failed your finals. You gained some weight. So what? You’re single again. You lost your job. So what? What now? You live. You try again. That’s what.

Do not go to bed
Angry with yourself
Even if it is with the cold, the tired of
Your hands that you must
Smooth your own sheets
Fluff your own pillow
Tuck yourself in;
Tomorrow you will still be
The only one who moves,
Breathes for you alone,
And in the strange comfort of a
Brisk but shiftless morning
It will be enough
To crave your own company
To take your coffee, take your time
The way you did last year.
I expect my comment is going to get deleted but for the few mins/hour it will get, I’m saying it. It really saddens me that my daughter is growing up in a world where one day a stranger (male OR female) could touch her without her consent, on a part of her body that is private (in my opinion) in the name of ‘comedy’ and then have thousands of other strangers comment on it saying it’s fine and she should be ok with it. Maybe she would find it funny, maybe she would be deeply humiliated. Point is, she’d have no choice. I want my daughter to have freedom and choices and feel that her body is respected.
