WE are not the same
please don’t get this twisted
XX but theoretically different
I seek mutual understanding
a meeting of the minds
you want to be superior
but at the same time colorblind
in all my flaws I want to be celebrated
your style of beauty a misogynistic creation
respect for all life
that I possess
your desire to kill off what inconveniences
causes much stress
I strive for success for all
while you hold others down
stepping on the backs of the weak
to make you seem tall
negativity is not my bag
this is not a judgement call
I need you to wake up woman
your actions affect us all
