- What Matters
A woman is defined by the shape of her body,
Or the beauty of her face.
Treated different as opposed to a man,
And helped if she walks at a fast pace.
So why am I not treated differently,
Because of my gender or looks.
Why am I not looked at funny when instead of magazines, I read books.
Is it because I decide I won't take it,
And speak up when I feel inferior?
And refuse to be treated differently,
Just because of my exterior?
And because I know the truth,
That I am not just a doll.
I want to read challenging books,
Rather than go to the mall.
I don't wear tons of make-up to look pretty,
And starve myself to be thin,
Because being a woman is more than that,
We're not as simple minded as men.
Whatever make US happy,
We're not built to look good in small sweaters,
Simply put, anything a man can do,
A woman can do ten times better.
