Hunching

The dowager's hump
Comes naturally
To most of womankind.

Ashamed
Are we
Afraid we might stick out
Or show off
Or think more of ourselves
Than we should.

Embarrassed
Of our breasts
Shoulders
Lanky hair
Height
Pale skin
Brown skin
Moles
Or acne
No matter what we have
We teach ourselves to hate it
To hunch over
To hide.

Oh, what would we be
What could we do
If we would only stop hunching?
