Becoming

Monochrome child, once peach-perfect
Skin, hides the flaws no parent sees
Sin embedded, embryonic
Waiting to hatch, scratch
Crack the fa├žade of dutiful obedience
In a brief blaze of independence
Which, all too short, is forced
Back into traditional mould,
Becoming a cardboard cut-out
A Stepford Wife, dismissed
As a woman of no substance
