Micro Poetry: Modern Women


Modern women

with the hair
on their heads

At war
with hair
anywhere else

    1. Sometimes when you are chronically ill you can’t keep up with shaving every other day anyway lol. I have to shave my underarms every day or they annoy me, but my legs sometimes takes a while to get around to lol.

      1. Your heart is beautiful, The rest don’t count that much. Do it for yourself, if you must. I don’t have hair but on head. At my age I am thankful. LOL

    1. It always baffled me. I always think about too how every other species, the male is the one that has to make himself attractive to the female (often with bright colors, dances, etc.), but in humans, women try to make themselves attractive to the males.

  1. Yes. It’s annoying. I struggle with this all the time. Because it’s like well…if I want to be appealing to someone then I have to shave my legs, shave my arm pits, but I don’t really. I don’t find that worth my time or money, but still part of me wants to be fit in and be attractive in that way. And then whenever I do shave etc. I feel like I’m not good enough and I always get down on myself. And why can’t I just put all my doubts aside and submit. Why do I have to fight it? And then I realize that it’s my choice and I shouldn’t have to do anything because I feel like society pressures me into it. I should just choose to shave or not because I want to and that I am good enough however I am.
