Fandango’s Flashback Friday – January 22

This weeks FFF goes back to 2017 when I wrote this poem for the word prompt of privacy…

What’s Inside

Can I get a little privacy

A little time to myself

Where I’m not

Girlfriend, mother, daughter,

Sister, or even friend…

*

A time when I can just be me

And not trying to impress someone

Or take care of another

A time when I put myself first

Not second, third or further down the line

*

Maybe it is not privacy I need

Maybe it is a change in me I need

A determination to be put first

A strength not to be walked on

A confidence that I matter

*

…maybe it is just not in me
