The North Face
Let's keep doing
things we can not do
There was a time when I couldn't choose which mountain to climb.
Not even considering whether I should climb it
Time when my hands were perfect
to do what I didn't choose to.
And my feet tired. Of walking what I didn't decide to walk.
There was a time when being a mother was not a choice,
Neither was working.
Time for me, but without being able to spend it or waste it.
There was a time when rights spoke only for one gender.
As did pants and sports.
Time when I shouldn't have played with balls.
Neither should I have had them.
There was a time when I couldn't give up.
Nor could I let go of what did me wrong,
without letting go what was good for me.
Time when I didn't have the right to do all this,
but i did it anyway.
Getting to the top.
Let’s keep doing things we can't do.
