The World We Live in

By 10, we were told that if boys poked and pushed us, they liked us

By 12, we were told that if boys made fun of us, that they wanted to be with us

By 13, we were told that we were told that we were pretty but men we didn’t know

By 14, we were told not to show to much shoulder, because its distracting the boys

By 15, we were told to change the way we looked, to look the girls in the magazines

By 16, we were told that we were distracting the male teachers from teaching by showing to much arm or leg

By 17, we were told to clutch our purse and bring a sharp object in our bags

By 18, we were seen as adults, we were seen as people who were nothing that were shapes, size, and colours

By 19, them men who were once were poking, pushing, and making fun of us finally caught up to us

Them same men that we looked up to all our lives, finally caught up to us, and let’s just say you don’t want to know what happened next

But its ok we won’t speak; we have been trained not to

We have been trained not to tell a soul of what happened to us

We have been silenced to our opinions

We have been told that what we say is wrong

What once started of as an innocent push, and prodding, turned into something bigger than that

By 10, we were told that if boys poked and pushed us, they liked us

By 12, we were told that if boys made fun of us, that they wanted to be with us

By 13, we were told that we were told that we were pretty but men we didn’t know

By 14, we were told not to show to much shoulder, because its distracting the boys

By 15, we were told to change the way we looked, to look the girls in the magazines

By 16, we were told that we were distracting the male teachers from teaching by showing to much arm or leg

By 17, we were told to clutch our purse and bring a sharp object in our bags

By 18, we were seen as adults, we were seen as people who were nothing that were shapes, size, and colours

By 19, them men who were once were poking, pushing, and making fun of us finally caught up to us

Author Notes: this is my interpretation of the world we live in, it is my opinion
