"Every Woman Should Have.." Personal Page by la_beba
and one who reminds her how far she has come
enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own
even if she never wants to or needs to.
Something perfect to wear
if the date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour
a youth she's content to leave behind
a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling in her old age
a feeling of control over her destiny.
A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill,
and a black lace bra
one friend who always makes her laugh,
and one who lets her cry
a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone
eight matching plates, wine glasses with steams,
and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored.
A Woman Should Know...
how to quit a job, break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without ruining the friendship.
When to try harder, and when to walk away.
That she can't change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents.
That her childhood may not have been perfect, but its over.
What she would and wouldn't do for love, or more
how to live alone, even if she doesn't like it.
Who she can trust, whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't take it personally.
Where to go, be it to her best friends kitchen table
or a charming inn in the woods
when her soul needs soothing.
What she can and can't accomplish in a day,
a month and a year.
