“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

We slice our swords through silent air
half hoping we look ridiculous enough 
for a real problem to lick its lips at us as easy prey
or draw the eyes of our brother and sister pages
and hope they point, but pray they don't laugh,
and force our masters to recognize our hopelessness
and alas give us up or take us in.

hmm, Not sure what you are trying to convey, but what I see is this:

I see failure; giving in to your weaknesses. Trying to hide from the world, but knowing that you can't do it forever so you give in. Not knowing the outcome of the situation, and what your going to bestow on the other side. Very supressed piece with a side of suspense. I like it

Everyone does this; not just girls. Great poem. Lira, not Lisa. :) You convey something within us all.
