Tuesday’s writing prompt was oh girl. I didn’t know at first what to do with this, but pretty soon a voice came into my head and started talking. It’s the kind of round middle-register voice that could belong to a higher-voiced man or a low-voiced woman. At first the voice was addressing me, but soon it moved on to other girls in my life, saying:
nobody’s looking at you,
They’re only thinking of themselves,
afraid you’re judging them too.
it’s been a long time,
whyn’t you take better care of yourself,
You should do this more often,
let some’a that load slip off your shoulders,
breathe a little.
you know what you want,
you’re just afraid to ask for it.
you don’t have to know it all,
you don’t have to be so mature all the time,
you’re still young, you know.
don’t just do what he wants.
you’re so beautiful,
I just want to look at you all the time,
you don’t even know.
Mmm, thought provoking. I see a Mrs.Robinson figure.
That’s so strange — I was just thinking of Mrs Robinson the other day, while showering, of all things. I watched the movie in high school and I was thinking I should really see it again because I remember almost nothing from it.
These words of wisdom make me smile! Wish I could have read them when I was in middle school or something!
I think I might have had some of these things said to me at that age, and of course I ignored them because I didn’t believe they were true. ;b Me, beautiful? Nonsense! Sigh…
Oh girl, I totally loved this. 😉 I should have had my room wallpapered with this in high school. And college.
🙂 It’s not too late… 😉
