What if

What if –
We all supported each other
What if –
Their win isn’t your loss
What if-
You didn’t cut someone or something down
Every time you built something up
What if-
You wore the shirts
The shorts
The skirts
And
Other women didn’t reprimand you
What if –
Women were celebrated for their accomplishments and not just for marriage-
What if they didn’t spend every moment making sure they weren’t tempting men
Or acting just right
Or under the microscope of everything
What if we all could just discuss and compromise on politics and ideas
What if
We’ve been duped into believing in a win lose
Good guy
Bad guy
Good wife
Bad wife
Good girl
Bad girl
—-/
What if there are none of these things ?
There’s just you and me
us
Right here
In small towns
Big cities
One life
Fighting
Editing each other
When we could be coming together
Building eachother up
Winning
And helping those coming up next
To do the same
——
What if
You crushed your goals
You wore the shirts
The skirts
The clothes
The shoes
The look
You did what made you happy
Really
Really
happy
And you were great at it.
You can
You don’t have to settle for one hour every few weeks with your person
You don’t have to chase things
That make you miserable
And you don’t have to defend yourself
You don’t have to make excuses
You are valid
If you want something more
You deserve something more
You don’t have to wait for permission

Go be you
And celebrate you
Your wins
Your accomplishments
And notice those around you when they win
And celebrate them too.
I believe we all can win.
And why shouldn’t we?
What else is there?
