(hidden lessons) 

  1. My life is just another number. 
  2. My youth is just skin.
  3. My sex is cheap. 
  4. My body is a commodity.
  5. My gender is unaccountable. 
  6. My skills are luxury. 
  7. My decisions only secondary. 
  8. My thoughts weightless.
  9. My flesh is weak. 
  10. My words are mute. 

Thank you for reinforcing these every day. I will learn these, someday, and etch them on my secondhand Made-In-China plastic heart for all to see.
