LIKE A ROCKET

I was educated to become the stereotype of the good girl. Gone is my own nature? No, it roars inside me. I am a rocket girl. 

The man is a child
Who took a lifetime to restrain oneself,
To limit oneself, to be limited, to accept oneself limited
At adulthood he reached it, almost reached it.
— Henri Michaux
