A Womans Liberation

I grew up a while back
and took off my tight jeans
and those other little, skimpy things
to liberate my body.

I put away my
old love letter
from long-gone boyfriends
to liberate my heart.

I discarded my false nations of
how young ladies should act
in male-dominated societies
to liberate my mind.

I dared to picture myself a heaven,
so that I could reach
for a better tomorrow
to liberate my soul.

And then I flew
far away
like a bird
in no cage.
