When I examine those hard lines on my brow I think about how you have to fight for everything in this world. As you fight your skin gets thicker and I’m afraid your heart gets a little colder too or perhaps just buried deeper. You get those deep lines on your brow, so much effort marking our faces. Everything is a fight and as you get older you have to fight harder. I also know that as a woman I have had to fight for things I shouldn’t have had too. It’s exhausting but fortunately I have enough fire in me to keep fighting. Damn anyone who stands in my way.
