I will be me

Skin covered, neck to ankles
Boys will be boys, they say
But why can't I be myself?
I wear crop tops
I wear skirts.
Does that make me a slut?
No
Does that make me, me?
Yes

I wear sweatpants
I don't always wear makeup
Does that make me ugly?
No
Does that make me, me?
Yes
Why can't I be me?
Why shouldn't I be me?
Because society says so
Screw society
I will be me
You will be you

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
