No Wonder

Sun, 06/21/2015 - 21:59 -- acnoel

we grew up with Barbie dolls, princesses, baseball and football stars

we grew up being taught, "pink is a girl’s color and blue is for boys"

we grew up being taught it's a man’s world

we grew up being taught people only marry of the opposite sex,

 

no wonder now all we want is to be perfect

no wonder everything is based on gender roles

no wonder women aren't taken seriously

no wonder we don't let anyone be who they want to be,

 

because we grew up on falsification and conformity.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
