I have quick lipped
sorries in my back pockets,
I still never coped with anger.

There is a handful
of diet pills that could easily
silence the pulse of stronger women
and I threw them out.

I don’t need the possibility of death
I no longer pull blood
from the side of the easy way out.

There will never be a perfect balance,
always too much
always too little
but there are scars
not fresh wounds.

There is nothing simple about this.
There never was.

We are the girls with anxiety disorders, filled appointment books, five-year plans. We take ourselves very, very seriously. We are the peacemakers, the do-gooders, the givers, the savers. We are on time, overly prepared, well read, and witty, intellectually curious, always moving… We pride ourselves on getting as little sleep as possible and thrive on self-deprivation. We drink coffee, a lot of it. We are on birth control, Prozac, and multivitamins… We are relentless, judgmental with ourselves, and forgiving to others. We never want to be as passive-aggressive as our mothers, never want to marry men as uninspired as our fathers… We are the daughters of the feminists who said, ‘You can be anything,’ and we heard, ‘You have to be everything.’

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.
