Sarcastic Brown Girls at Twenty One

I rise
I rise to the height of the mirror in my bathroom to apply mascara and contour the broadness of my nose down to a narrowness

I rise
I rise from the prostrate position on my bed to pull on the tightest pair of high waisted skinny jeans in my closet

I rise
I rise by another 5 inches above everyone else’s head when I put heels on to go out -_-

I rise
I rise to walk out of the house as fast as possible without Mum and Dad seeing me in my backless dress

I rise
My heart rate rises as I make my first attempt to leave and I hear my Samoan mothers voice call out my name

I sit
I sit down because I got snapped and my Mum’s giving me a growling

I rise
I rise because Ive been told to make Mum and Dad a cup of tea

I lie
I lie back down in my bed and accept that Im not going anywhere tonight
