Failed Women

Woman’s silhouette (Google Images)

This is the face of a woman who has been failed by those closest to her. 

The face of a woman who has been disappointed and isolated 

The face of a woman who has been rejected and hated 

Isn’t it glorious?

Her lips curve in the eerie caricature of a smile

Her dead eyes gaze blankly at those that pass by

Her body broken and beaten by the blows administered with precise intent to destroy

This is the face of a woman who has been failed by society 

These are her eyes

These are her lips

This is her body

This is her soul.

Aren’t they beautiful?
