A Song In The Front Yard

Rating: 3.4
I’ve stayed in the front yard all my life.
I want a peek at the back
Where it’s rough and untended and hungry weed grows.
A girl gets sick of a rose.

I want to go in the back yard now
And maybe down the alley,
To where the charity children play.
I want a good time today.
They do some wonderful things.

A very honest poem, not concerned about respectability, 'I'd like to be a bad woman too... /And strut down the streets with paint on my face. So refreshing to read this.
