Doesn’t she know how it’s *supposed* to be?

The nerve of that woman
To go be happy —
Doesn’t she know
She’s single?

Living entirely her own life,
Making all her own choices
As to how to make this world
A better one,
And perfectly content —
That’s got to be an act, right?

Where I come from,
Everyone is miserable
Single, married or otherwise:
That’s how it’s supposed to be

But she’s sitting on a beach somewhere
Happily within her own thoughts
Living an independent existence
Where love is a matter of daily choice
Not ritual obligation

What’s wrong with her?

Or is there maybe

Something wrong with me?

    For all the women (and men) out there taking happiness entirely into their own hands. Reminds me of the times I’ve taken holidays on my own. Never have I known such an accelerated way to create a little self-love.
