A Poem for Society


You told her if she wore that dress,

Sheโ€™d be the prettiest of all,

You told her she should wear high heels,

Because she needed to be tall,

You told her how to cut her hair,

And how much skin to show,

You told her exactly what to wear,

Trust me, because i know,

You told her if she wanted boys,

She had to change her ways,

You told her to wear make-up,

Because plain skinโ€™s not okay,

You told her who she could love,

That anything different was wrong,

But you made her feel secluded,

Like she would never belong,

She hated wearing dresses,

And she couldnโ€™t walk in heels,

She couldnโ€™t live to your standards,

And all of your ideals,

So you told her what she felt,

Was the furthest from the truth,

She couldnโ€™t be โ€˜depressedโ€™,

Because she was in her youth,

You told her she was a โ€˜freakโ€™,

That she would never fit in,

But then you told her nothing,

As she pressed a blade up to her skin,

And once she had decided,

That you would tell her nothing more,

You wish youโ€™d told the truth.

As she collapsed onto the floor,

She didnโ€™t need the make-up

That being her was fine,

She could wear what made her happy,

That she could not be defined,

Then when you came to realise,

That she never knew you cared,

You wish that youโ€™d have told her,

The world was better with her there...
