A Poem by GeorgiaR

Train writing session.

As young girls, we are taught to walk heel-toe. 
Because as young girls we are slowly being prepared for womanhood.
Where we must walk heel-toe.
But, me? 
I just walk.
In flat shoes, through mud and cobbles.
Where there is no threat of a kitten keel getting stuck. 
Because, I like the outdoors, instead of function rooms.
I like the moonlight, not the ballroom lights. 
I like forest-fires and bonfires, not candles. 
When my best friends were having tea-parties, I was playing tag.
When my sister was playing with dolls, I was in my roller blades. 
When the girls at school played princesses, I wanted to play football.
Most women walks heel-toe.
I just walk. 
As a woman. 
I have learn to walk according to incline, to environment, and comfort. 
Sometimes, I even walk toe-heel.
