It's an echo of society

it instills this insecurity 

and encourages us

to fade into obscurity

to accept medicority

lest we be criticized 

to refuse idolization

a compliment little more than

a test of your womanhood

to refuse is to seek reaffirmation

an unacceptable show of feminine weakness

a turtle in it's shell

grown on it's back from the origins of doubt

to accept however is little more

to accept is to be a whore

too confident and too vain

why the very idea that a woman should love herself

is simply insane
