A Girl in This World

May 26, 2020

PROMPT: Flashlight

3
My pants have no pockets, 
Because I'm expected to use handbags. 
Since I must bleed monthly,
I'm back to the diapers. 

I'm constantly told,
"Stop sitting like that," 
"Eat properly,"
"Speak lightly."

I'm a girl in this world,
It feels unfair and uncomfortable.
The stereotypes are too strict, 
And I can't live up to them. 

I can do what I want,
Because I have all my meals,
Because I have my friends,
Because I have my family. 

There are infinite numbers of possibilities,
I can be a doctor,
I can be an entrepreneur,
I can be a chef, 
I can be a writer, 
and I can be an engineer. 

I'm a girl in this world, 
It feels free and happy. 
My goals are hard, 
But I can reach them with hard work.
