Never Trust A Strut

They say a woman that can rip 
a back block like a runway is either 
out for your money or attention. 
And 9 times out of 10 she probably 
won’t even have to sweat her make 
up off to get them.
Beauty is such a plastic thing these days. 
Rumor has it a good girl who wears her 
heart on her sleeve will have it ripped off 
and stomped on before she graduates 
from junior high.
So that means that on the first day she 
struts into high school, she’ll be calling 
herself a bad bitch and bragging about 
men twice her age.
I swear, 
these times are a time bomb for apocalypse. 
A smoke bomb for love at first sight. 
Fear has our deepest dreams in a straightjacket.

We all pretend to be bulletproof until risk 
comes along with a revolver and challenges 
us to a game of Russian roulette.

Only if we knew that the winner would one day 
be able to reflect on life with a smile and no regrets.
