Opening Her Eyes

Photo by Mathias P.R. Reding on

She was stubborn to a fault,

And impetuous at best.

She charged headfirst

And forgot to heed the warnings

That, one day, she would regret.

But everyone saw it coming,

No one could change her mind.

She flew of to meet her destiny,

Leaving the risks behind.

She wanted to be a model,

She definitely had the looks.

But the photographer was a con man,

A no-good basic crook.

He tried to take her picture

Wearing nothing but a smile,

But she drew on her stubbornness

And called him out, a liar.

She came home dejected and discouraged,

But certain about the future –

She would never again by used.
