Poetry: Girls

image2-1

Girls

The weaker sex

The gender known for its compassion

Yet the nastiest remarks come from girls?

Rumors are spread as easily as breaths are taken.

Respond to rumors?

Why.

That would stoke the coals of gossip.

Churn them into a raging firestorm.

I am silenced.

Better to keep quiet.

Let the coals burn down into ash.

Confidence.

Integrity.

That’s what bringers of gossip lack.

The truth is:

Run my name through the mud.

I will always come out clean.
