I am so very afraid,
To go out on my own at night,
Hell, it doesn’t matter what time of day!
I carry so much fright.
Even during summertime,
I dress from head to toe,
Alas this fact is disregarded by crime!
Even though there is no skin show.
For predators prowl no matter what,
It doesn’t matter what we wear,
It is only us girls who are taught,
To be mindful and take more care.
We are mothers and sisters and daughters too!
But all they see is a nice juicy hole,
We cannot do as boys would do,
For doing so has a repugnant toll.
My soul yearns to be free with no restrictions,
Oh why can we not educate our men?!
Their deprivations lead to addictions?
Let them learn to behave as human!
no one is asking for it unless they are verbally asking for it.
