the boy who thought he was a man

i had always been told

there was nothing weaker

than a man’s ego—

but i didn’t know

how true that was

until the same lips

that told me they loved me

called me a slut because i refused

to correspond their exaggerated

and selfish ideal of love.

unluckily for him,

i was born a woman.

and the words

he thought would hurt me

only resonate in my head

to make me laugh.

and to be a friendly reminder

that i only need myself.
