THEY WANT ME TO BE WEAK

cry

They want me to be weak.

 

To them I am a woman rather than a human,

Whenever I show my strength,

They call me a rebel

 

They want me to depend on them,

They are not enough opportunities to make me compete with them

 

They want me to serve them,

They’ll turn the screws and lift the heavy items,

I’ll stir the soup, I’ll wash the clothes

 

Some are my friends some are family,

Why would you want to see me fall rather than rise

 

Lets talk about equity,

But lets practice patriarchy

 

Equal or not,

Can’t we at least respect each other
