Conformity

Is it so wrong to want to remain single or a virgin for the rest of my life?

Questioning faces with raised eyebrows

Judging me

Condemning me.

.

Virginity is scarce

Promiscuity is rampant

And they act as if I’ve committed a heinous crime

An unforgivable sin.

.

They mock me

They want to put me to shame

Cast stones at me

All for what?

For standing my ground and not confirming to what they want.

.

But I will not back down

My resolve is strong

Let me be the odd one!

Let me be the rebel!

Let me be the outcast!

I will not conform to them.

Where This Road Takes Me

Where the road takes me…I go

To unfamiliar places

Where whispers of strangers linger

And places unimaginable

I will follow the path as best as I can

Though fog may cloud it

Slowly and surely I will make my way through

 

Where this road will take me…I do not know

Nothing is certain or set in stone

But every bump, pot hole or even dead-end

I may encounter….

I know that I will make it to the end of the road
