Rescue You – Eve Ensler

Posted by LinksForGirls | November 9, 2010 1

Rescue you

Mind read your needs

Know your body better

Always fight back

Ask for it

Say you want it

Cherish your solitude

Take trains by yourself

To places you have never been

Sleep alone out under the stars

Learn how to drive stick shift

Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back

Say no when you don’t want something

Say yes when your instincts are strong

Even if everyone around you disagrees

Decide whether you want to be liked or admired

It’s easier to be mean than smarter

Decide if fitting in is more important

Than finding out what you’re doing here

Believe in kissing

Fight for tenderness

Care as much as you do

Cry as much as you want

Insist the world be better

Ask yourself these questions:

Why am I whispering when I have something to say?

Why am I apologizing every time I express my needs?

Pretending it doesn’t mean that much to me?

Why am I waiting?

Pining?

Fitting in?

You know the truth:

Sometimes it does hurt that much

But you can still feel love

This is an excerpt from “I Am An Emotional Creature”
