Why Can't I Speak My Mind?

Because,
I'm merely a girl.
There are expectations on what I can wear.
Say.
Buy.
Do.
Think.
 
 
I'm merely a daughter. 
There are rules as to what I can wear.
Say.
Buy.
Do.
Think.
 
 
I'm merely a student.
There are limits on what I can wear.
Say.
Buy. 
Do.
Think.
 
 
I'm merely a teenager.
There are restrictions on what I can wear.
Say.
Buy.
Do.
Think.
 
 
I'm almost an adult now which means the restrictions on what I can
Wear,
Say,
Buy,
Do,
And think,
Will evaportate.
 
 
No more limits, rules, or expectations of who I have to be. 
 
 
After 18 years of being told what I can wear,
Say,
Buy, 
Do, 
Think,
It's hard to think for myself.
 
 
But now that I'm an adult, I will be the only one who creates
Expectations,
Rules,
Limits,
And restrictions, 
On what I can wear,
Say, 
Buy,
Do, 
And think.
 
 
I may not know how to speak my mind now,
But I will-
 
-Eventually. 
 
Because I am an individual
