You are not made of metaphors, apologies or excuses.

If you grew up the type of women men want to look at, hold, love and then maybe leave, this poem addresses you, this poem is for you.

It urges you to forgive yourself for deeds that you consider to be a mistake, for you were only searching for a place to call home.

You are not the answer, the problem, poem, punchline or a riddle, or joke
