It was dumb of me

To have appraised myself

Through other’s eyes

For so long

I think now I am

Gaining enough experience

To see myself through

Clearer lenses, and I’m

Not at all interested in

The perspective of others

They have been wrong

About everything so far

Especially the part

Where I’m a woman
