the type of woman [poem]

I have always been the type of woman
who sets her course with deliberate focus
and stays on the path laid out
as long as it is right for the end goal
I’m also the type of woman
who changes direction when the end goal
is no longer desirable
or the path is too full of thorns
people often mistake my steady forward movement
for complacency or mindless obedience
always so surprised
when I grab the wheel and
turn the other way
