Dress-up

stressed

I had heard that you could be 

Anything that you wanted to be

Provided you were sufficiently smart

To dress appropriately for the part-

As a young woman brimming with ambition

I believed this saying and had a vision

Of me achieving professional success

Clad in an expensive designer dress

While the former was elusive it was easy to

Splurge on clothing, and accessories too

An adult version of dress-up was what I

Indulged in, looking for my place under the sky

**

Maybe the dictum that I just mentioned

Is true for some, but in my profession

Dressing-up proved to be more of a nuisance

It hindered efficiency, did nothing for my competence

Despite a few compliments I soon realized

Excellence at work was the only quality prized

So returning designer wear back in its place

Clad in scrubs, I set out to carve my space

Using ingredients of hard work and confidence

I found the recipe for success which made sense..
