This is so wrong,

Something here isn’t right,

I’ve done nothing wrong,

to start such a fight,

Accusations aimed right at my skin,

no matter what I do,

I just can’t win.

I want to be good, apologetic,

because my skin caused your grades,

to become so pathetic,

How can my shoulders become such a distraction,

and my education,

matter only a fraction,

It’s like it’s our fault it gets hot in spring,

and we have to wear

much shorter things.

So what is a women to do?


What is a human to do?

When what we wear to feel nice,

gets us shamed even more,

I guess being fair would have been a real bore,

So I know by writing this,

I’m bringing regard,

to an issue that might be best disbarred,

Because yes it’s true, other places have it worse,

That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to make ours less of a curse.

“You’re too young to be wearing that!”

He says with despise

In my opinion

I’m too young,

to be sexualized

What I really mean is,

No person should ever be made an object,

So all of you out there,

Have some human respect.

Because “Nobody’s perfect”

Is never an excuse.

Not even for a million dollars,

Will we let slip this abuse

So shut your eyes,

Take a breath,

Breathe in,

Just be bold

Cause’ you have too just remember,

what ‘s written in old,

Don’t waste your life,

Following a code

    This poem is nice
    Its like biting ice
    But if i bite ice
    Then how should I cry
    because then ice
    will suck out my eyes
    without my eyes
    how shall i cry
    because if i cant cry
    then i cant cry
    then how shall i eat ice
    if i cannot cry.
