Trapped in the age-old conundrum,
Exasperated, confused and panic-stricken
Pulling out pieces picked at random
I am one of those millions of women
Who stare at their closets each day
Overflowing with clothes and accessories
Before getting dressed, for work or for play
This tops the list of their many worries-
Despite shopping left, right and center
Blowing their budgets on personal adornment
Buying out of boredom, or for pleasure
They all echo a common sentiment-
Why is it that I have nothing to wear?
I just bought some clothes last week!
Can’t find a decent outfit, I swear
Retail therapy is where refuge I seek..
When we say that, we are calculating
The number of people who might have seen
Us in any outfit; it is upsetting
That repeating outfits invites comments mean..
I am as much a culprit as another
Never knowing what to wear
Maybe I should downsize and declutter
Strip my closets of everything but essentials bare.
