Welcome to society.
Where girls are never skinny enough,
And boys are never athletic enough.
Where catcalls and whistles are the new hello,
And anorexia is a trend.
I changed my identity from human to object.


Welcome to society
Where being yourself is anything but promoted
And opinions mean everything.
Where the greatest influence is to be appealing
And above anything else, to strive for perfection.
Everything is a bunch of broken promises.


Welcome to society
Where first kiss stories don’t matter
But first rape stories are too common.
Where leggings and a tank top are ‘asking for it’
And scars on a wrist are beautiful.
I keep screaming, hoping someone will hear.


Welcome to society
Where no means yes,
And everyone is just “blissfully” naive.
Where the only language we communicate in is numbers
And we are all just human recycling bins.
Most mornings I just wake up and cry.


Welcome to society

Where boys will boys,
And treat girls like nothing but toys.
Where self love doesn’t come first
Or second, or ever.
