I felt like a child again.
First day of school,
Walking into a classroom,
full of judgmental people

But this time,
I didn’t have this safety
of my mothers hand
I was on my own

It took me a lot of courage
To walk through the hallways
because I know that people noticed
The way I looked

I did not wear mascara
But flaunted my long blond lashes
With showed my dark green eyes
And made me innocent

It made me vulnerable
But I did not care
Because for once I was a little girl again
Who was not limited by her fears.

Love, Josephine
