Happy late international woman's day!

Walking, alone in the street.
Taking the long way round,
To avoid the back roads.
But when you do take the back road,
Earphones go in, music playing loud.
Loud so you don't feel so alone,
But not too loud,
You wouldn't want to miss somebody following behind you.
Constantly looking behind,
Every few seconds.
Walking in the city,
Watching carefully,
Looking at everybody's faces.
You can never be too safe.
Pulling your over sized hoodie down,
You don't want to risk being told, 'it was your fault'.
Watching families, friends, other people alone.
Could they hurt me?
