People said I could be who I wanted to be

I could do what I wanted too

They never told me that men ran the world

And there would be rules

I would have to twist and tumble over

Like an Olympian gymnast

They never told me

I’d barely make it out alive

They forgot to tell me that

Men would subjugate me

Beat me…

If I tried to be equal

Men would sexualize me

Molest me…sexually assault me…rape me…

If I displayed my beauty

Men would muzzle me

Bitch… tramp…emotionally driven…irrational

If I demanded respect

They never told me to expect this

To barely make it out alive, as a woman,

In a world that never gave a shit

About who I wanted to be

Or the things I could do

Unless those things

Serve men who run the world
