"a bird cannot fly high unless using his own wings." : (an old Jewish proverb)

I am a disease.
I am a scourge.
I am what everyone fears and bends to follow even if it is painful.
I control the thoughts of young girls and young women.
I control the actions of the world.
I force vulnerable youngsters into boxlike worlds.
I constrict the freedom of individuality and self expression.
I prevent you from making the right decisions.
I mold you into what I expect you to be.
I am the fear of your school and the fear of your image.
I corrupt the innocent actions of children.
I cause pain and tears wherever I go.
I have power.
