Prudence (A Poem)

She takes each step with caution,

Like she is walking on shattered glass

Her kitten heel shines like a mirror,

Shirt pressed and tuckes into a neat black skirt

Every piece of hair is in it’s place,

Eyelashes as perfect as Audrey Hepburn’s and lips like Marilyn Monroe

Her mouth forms every word, enunciating every syllable like a lover

Her entire life is planned, written down in complete detail

She can’t stray from what she does in fear that once again she will fall into the abyss

She stays cautious and steady, like a river, firm and strong like the tallest moutain

After all, her name is. . . .

Prudence
