runaway girls

instead of runway girls

they fled from a world of constraint and shame

with nothing to look forward to but everything

after they’d secretly unchecked the boxes on their father’s app

enabling their own freedom

so that they could be allowed (technically) to break free, to run away, to any country which was not theirs, to

any kind of life which should be yours by right when you’re twenty-two and in love

with the world

and you don’t understand those male voices telling you to be less

than them

and quiet, and hidden, and so very


to be less than you could be

so, they run away at every cost

and become just that:

runaway girls
