adoration

let's cry for the women who adores
those who wile away their lives
in pursuit not of dreams nor of achievements
who neither improve themselves
or the world around them

let's cry for the women who adores
those who press their fingertips to their eyelids
imagining instead of living
whose worlds are so small that they fit in
a single room in a single house

let's cry for the women who adores
those who will throw themselves down to be seen
who will be willingly trampled on
so that they may be seen by that one person
that has the power to make them jail themselves

let's cry for the women who adores
those who will once lash out at the scorn
heaped on them for who they are
but who will nevertheless keep on loving
because without them that one person is nothing
