The Right to Be Me

I am a girl and I have no right to be me,

They keep details of who I am,

Of, who I should be

And how far I should go with my career,

I should never grow tall or remain short,

Just be somewhere in the middle,

And their expectations met in me.


I am a girl and I have no right to be me,

I never notice how beautiful my brain is,

Sometimes I forget I have one,

And concentrate on my external appearance.

I give my best smile to get into a public office,

A really good shot to make it in life,

And sleep with my boss to get a promotion.


I am a girl and I have no right to be me,

The length of my skirt is set by people around me,

That stunning mini makes me a slut

And my long denim is very old fashioned.

I dress modestly to secure a good job,

Keep fly to maintain my job,

And I’m guilty rape with what I wear.


I am a girl and I have no right to be me,

I’m bad wife because I work to make ends meet,

A crappy homemaker when my marriage fails,

And I attract wife battery with my flimsy opinions.

My dignity is compromised if I want a fair trial,

I am scorned when I stand up for us,

And I have to be someone else to get what I want.


If only you let me be myself…
