“Blessed Singlehood”

Girl, you don’t need anyone else
To make you feel fulfilled;
Loving the freedom to choose
What to do,
Where to go,
When to begin,
And how to enact anything,
Comes when you comprehend
That you can simply be yourself,
Sans any affirmation
From anyone else;
In truth, you can only be happy
When you can be comfortable
Despite being alone;
For, women are conditioned
To think that they need men
To be complete–
And it takes real guts,
Resilience, and patience
To prove that this outdated belief
Is absurd, biased, and wrong.
