I Won’t Conform

The society I sprouted from still thinks I, as a woman, am bound to always do wrong,

I am about to teach them a lesson

that many others before me have done,

and we together will slowly make this a new norm,

until everyone else realizes we aren’t just dependents – we all to the same rules conform,

So until this retardation has a chance to transform,

I will stick to being the strong, capable woman who makes things happen no matter the savageness of their storm.

    1. Where I come from, women are expected to put up with being walked all over and accepting their ‘fate’. I am one of the few who has decided to revolt. 😉

      1. I think you should, no one should be treated as a second class citizen purely on the basis of gender
