Tough Cookie?

I don’t feel like
such a tough cookie
right now.

Been standing on my
own two feet for years,
doing my thing,
facing the world
on my terms.

Making decisions,
trying to think
“like a man.”

But deep inside me
beats the heart
of a woman-child
and sometimes
when life feels tough
and I don’t,
I just need
someone to hold me.
