The Fault in Schools

March 24, 2021


School work is tiring
And that would be fine
If we'd need this for the real world
But we don't
They lied
We don't need gym packets
Of "How to Hold Rackets"
When every two minutes
A woman is assaulted
They don't tell us
How the system is faulted
They leave out the the dangers
Of walking by strangers
Or the every day risk
Of going by neighbors
They don't tell us our bodies
Are seen as parties
To people out there
That really don't care
Well, I suppose teachers teach it,
They do
When they tell us our shoulders
Are not acceptable in school
To all the girls on here (and guys) definitely at least once take a self defense class. It could save your life one day. We shouldn't have to, and this shouldn't be such a "taboo" topic, but it's worth it to say. I know a good program called "Gracie jiu jitsu". They have a "University" and you can even just do it at home if you buy the course online <3 Hope everyone's having a wonderful day  (is it bad that I'm worried this might just get taken down? idk for what but idkk)

    Ok, time for another round of the Peer Review club! I know, it hasn't been two weeks, but I have gotten so many new recruits I figured I should do a new round with the new members and then we can start on a somewhat normal schedule with this. :) So, please visit this piece: and leave a comment including between 1-3 pieces to be reviewed! If you don't have any to be reviewed, please let me know still so I can make sure everyone saw this. I will compile a list of all the new assignments for reviews, and leave you another comment with the link to that post. Thank you in advance! And as always, happy reviewing! XD

    This poem is so beautifully written! I agree with it 100%!! The last line is so relatable, though. Me and my friends always joke about how attractive our shoulders must be for the school to make us cover them. hahaha

    Re: almost, although I'm not sure if my test was correct, I might have to do it again to make sure.
