‘You can’t. You won’t.’

She binned her thin-skinned ego and canned her plan to hide in plain sight.

Instead of leggings and oversized t-shirt, she’d wear a dress to impress even when she wasn’t sure she had what it took to pull off the look. Fake it till you feel it, right? She put on a hat for protection against close inspection of her face, just in case. She didn’t want to give any more space to those who thought her place was forever in greyscale, in the shadows, in hiding. Soon, she’d take flight.

She could. And she would.

  1. I love your use of the internal rhyme. You make it look easy! I agree with the commenter who said it was “sing-songy.” I think that’s exactly what it is, quite musical. I like the progression from the first line being the opposite of the last one.
