Being a woman is terrifying

It’s hard being a woman My first breath already seized, Doctors naming me adorable Chained as they teased. It’s hard wearing skirts When you want to jump, kick and run, A scolding teacher telling you to sit still Whilst boys are allowed to have fun. It’s hard when girls grow up Having to plaster orange…

A British​ loyalty

“Come on Sarah, we’re at a party…” “So?” I ask my friend. “Everyone is drinking…” “As am I.” “You know what I mean,”  she sighed in exasperation. “No, I’m consuming liquid so surely I am also ‘drinking’.” “It’s a party for goodness sake!
