Memoirs of a Feminist

April 9, 2018
By Anonymous

I can't raise my hand too often,

or I'll be called a know-it-all. 

If I have my own opinion,

you'll say I'm bossy, I'll feel small. 


If I dare to share my feelings,

I'm emotional, tempermental. 

yet if I don't care how you percieve me, 

I'm reckless, a daredevil.


No matter what I do or say,

I'm just a "stupid girl".

When in fact, you have no clue,

how it feels to run the world. 


So look beyond my Resting B**** Face,

I can say without a doubt,

Rest in Peace Patriarchy,

your time is running out.

I wrote this piece at four am on the roof, mad at my sexist father and my misogynistic teacher, i hope you like it.
