If I were enough

If I were enough,
I would never be afraid.
I would never be afraid to fail,
To disappoint, or to prevail.

If I were enough,
I would never feel alone.
I would never feel alone in a crowded room,
Away from your love, away from you.

If I were enough,
I would never give in.
I would never give in to the desire,
To the hunger, or to the thirst.

If I were enough,
I would never starve.
I would never starve to fit in,
To feel justified, to be a woman.

If I were enough,
I would never have fallen.
I would never have fallen to the temptation,
To the euphoria, the intoxication.

If I were enough,
I would never refuse.
I would never refuse to believe,
To succumb, to agree.

If I were enough,
I would never concede.
I would never concede to the ruses,
To the battering, to the bruises.

If I were enough,
I would never be a victim.
I would never be a victim to him,
To the law, or to the system.

If I were enough,
I would never have to beg.
I would never have to beg for forgiveness,
For help, or for justice.

If I were enough,
I would not be here.
I would not be here in this steel cage,
On my knees, praying, weeping, afraid.

If I were enough,
Who would I be?
I wouldn’t know,
Because society has never told me.
