Woman Was, Woman Is

Woman was, Woman is

She was too young to be a woman

She was too thin to be slim

She was too dark

Too light

Not tall enough

Too tall

Her lips were too wide

Or not full enough

Her hair was too brittle

Or too full

Her hips were not wide enough to give her

A perfect 8 shape

She complained that her hips made her

Look too maternal

She complained that

No man have ever truly loved her

She said that they were dogs

She complained he was to soppy

Too needy

Like chewing gum stuck on a heel

She desperately wanted to be married

She wanted a hook –up and kids

No marriage

When age crept in quietly

She wanted to go back

To being too skinny

Too young

Choose your place!

I envision Hilda’s Shoulder to be a relationship park-a place you go to learn, vent and share. I have another understanding of the word relationship -I don’t think it is for people dating only. A marriage is a relationship too, and one which needs great rela- tions in the SHIP called home!
Hilda’s Shoulder is a place where we virtually hold hands like - real friends should. If you want to come anonymously...we understand ..still come! Hilda’s shoulder is here for you!
