They are three, the girls
shimmering in confidence
oozing a certain oomph
each an expert
each holding a promise
shaking heads vigorously
gesturing almost wildly
talking in excited tones
eyes full of dreams
girls so lady-like.
In the intercices of the dreams
are hidden certain fears
fear of fighting pre-conceived notions
of uninvited attention, ridicule,desertion
of failing, of winning, of then what?
and a powerful deep deep assertion of the self
rooting for self-happiness.
It’s a difficult world
but these three will see it through
their ways will be different
but friends they remain
and success meets them at every turn.
Together life is more beautiful.
