She makes you smile, she frowns

She makes you laugh, she cries

She makes you strong, she’s weak

She makes you happy, she’s sad

For all she gives to you

She takes from herself

And when she’s done giving

She’s left with nothing else

She’s not a people pleaser

She’s a you -pleaser

She’s really good at hiding her true emotions

So good, it’s scary.

-Art By Danny O’Connor

  1. Such a concise and cutting poem! As a man I read it with responses of my own, and in the end felt like a monster or like apologizing. Neither. Both. Great work
