The Reluctant Mermaid

one woman unwilling to swim in the same direction as the others


snakes and rainbows

there are times in our lives
where every step we take feels like
we are walking on snakes
who coil themselves
and bite
and hiss
and try to stop us
when we want to just keep going

but if we can make it though
if we can just step over them
immune to their venom
and unafraid of their strikes
well then my friend,
we get to wear rainbow knee socks in celebration.
