An Ode to the Women I Used to bb


I used to be alert and awake by 7:00
I used to eat toast and eggs in the morning
I used to cover up tired eyes with concealer and mascara
I used to wear blue jeans
I used to take notes on paper
I used to study for tests
I used to miss days of school for golf
I used to see my family only at dinner time
I used to play with my PALee
I used to laugh at the lunch table with 5 girls
I used to drive freely
I used to go to the grocery store and buy toilet paper
I used to never FaceTime
I used to whisper while the teacher talked
I used to constantly be tired
I used to run out of time
I used to never paint my nails
I used to not play piano
I used to not go for long walks with my mom
I used to not drink tea for relaxation
I used to not feed my chickens
I used to not plant seeds in the ground
I used to not read for enjoyment
I used to not see the freedom I had
