Poem I wrote this time it is depressing-ish
So in my Careers class we're exploring the topic of "Why do some people think I'm not good enough" which is a watered down "Why am I not good enough to me" so I wrote a poem for my project and this is how it went.
Change your outfit.
They won't stop staring.
Change it again.
They won't look enough.
Put on makeup.
You look tired.
Put on less makeup.
You look like you belong to the streets.
Will it ever be enough for you?
Will I ever do it right?
No you can't say that.
You're a woman you can't think that.
You have to get married.
And have kids.
Society has it's foot pressed against my back and I can't stand.
But if someone were to try to change their minds
They'd be stuck under the hellfire just like me.
We can change.
We don't want to change.
We stay stuck in our traditional stupid ways.
Stop being confident.
You're being too fiesty.
Stop being so weak.
We don't like for women to cry so much.
We act like its just the men but the women are just as bad.
If not worse.
We like to blame things on people who aren't their fault.
Human nature makes us selfish.
All of us.
Even down to the kindest soul.
I'm sorry if I'm too outspoken.
I'm sorry if I'm too loud.
I'm sorry if I'm not good enough but they are.
I'm sorry if I'm not as pretty as her.
I'm sorry if I'm too crazy for you.
I'm sorry that you feel the way you do.
I really am.
But I have one question that may I ask?
Why am I not good enough for you?
Should I submit it or change it up a bit?
