TV sets cloaked in grey and lonely
the old dustpan cant save you
from the isolation of being the only
one without a someone to relate to.

My eyes adjusted to not seeing
other girls who are Jewish and gay
on the dim screen, not any being
(spoiler) the one to save the day.

I want there to be a deaf Jedi Knight
princesses with depression and anxiety,
Heroes aren't always cis and white.
I want characters as diverse as society.
