wishes

the girl with the curves wishes she was thinner

the girl with narrow hips wishes her breasts were bigger

 

the girl with the acne wishes her skin was clear

the girl with clear skin wishes her freckles would disappear 

 

the girl with intelligence wishes she was pretty

the girl with beauty wishes classes were easy

 

the girl with straight hair wishes it was curly

ingrained

ingrained in our brains

the need to be thin

the need to be thin 

so we fit in

 

ingrained in ours brains

ideals of beauty

to be pretty is our duty

 

ingrained in our brains

be nice and sweet

watch how you speak!

 

unburden your brain

let yourself be

embrace who you are

woman be free

#womenbeautyequalityfeminismwomen about women

Period

A gift from mother nature

to bring about new life

a blooming flower to show

you're ready to be a wife

 

red river or crimson tide

that time of the month

if your temper rises 

you must be on the blob

 

those pesky women's problems

bloody mary'd to the max

and for the womanly privilage

they added luxury tax

Shower

Sanding in the shower

Thinking of my woes

Comtemplating life

Water circling my toes

 

Washing only take a minute

Thoughts and dreams much longer

I love this time for me

It makes me feel much stronger

 

A knock at the door

Breaks me from my reverie

"Mum, are you done yet?"

Ah, back to reality

Superpower

I have a superpower

It's really something to see

From family to strangers

It transforms those around me

 

It can make the sad feel happy

It can brighten the darkest day

It can make the ill feel better 

What more can I say

 

Can you guess what my power is?

On it you cannot put a price

It's the coolest superpower of all

Being really nice
