Girls

 

This poem is for all the wonderful women, ladies, girls

And I think women actually may rule the world,

But humans of the female persuasion are more than pearls

They’re diamonds; critical to man and his kind, but if men do rule the Earth,

It’s probably a woman’s universe

And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise

The world is yours and you can do anything your heart desires

And to the stereotypes and prejudice, you ladies should throw to fire

You’re more than just a pretty face, an object of desire, or housewife

You’re not meant to just play with barbies or like pink, being into sports is more than fine

You’re far more than the exterior; you are the inside

You’re the soul and mind, the most important part of a human being

You’re more than a damsel in distress, you can be Katniss Everdeen

You can be the focus of the music that everyone sings

You can be the face of an entire nation, if you wanna be

If you apply yourself you can simply be anything

And don’t let anyone make you feel you’re worth less than what you deserve

You are a gift to this Earth; go out on your terms;

Not a man’s, another girl’s, or even the world’s

‘Cause remember, if this Earth isn’t your planet, you can own the universe

I was inspired to write this when I was listenin' to Shad's - "Keep Shining" and this sick story my dad told me about this politician. But I won't go on about that. :XD: This is just a positive writing about wonderful women. :) My two best friends are girls, and I'm proud to say that a few of the greatest blessings in my life are women. :aww: So just a corny-ish poem, writin' about women! :dummy:

All feedback is appreciated. Whether you love it, like it, or hate it; I wanna hear what you guys think of it. :)

Yes.  Just yes.
I love math (math is life!) but back in elementary they used to tease me incessantly about that (apparently short girls and math just didn't mix).  I showed them better by getting all the 1st place medals in all the contests...hah!
So.  Thank you for this lovely poem.

I appreciate this piece. I understand modern-day feminism.

But men, they really do run into the same problems.

While women's gender stereotypes erode like feminism is the Colorado River, men get none of the benefits, and instead have to just sit there as feminists keep on going, sometimes even blaming men for their former problems. Former problems.

I, as a very feminine man, end up at the very bottom of the social order, because men's gender stereotypes haven't gone anywhere to the point where both genders look down on me for being who I am.

Lol, I think someone else either commented with something similar on one of these types of pieces of mine, but I understand that men have problems. I'm kind of a male myself? But if we were to look to silence people-- that's why they "keep going on," everyone's got something bugging at them, you gotta give 'em a platform to speak. But, really this isn't even that deep. I wrote this when I was 16 and this isn't about men. It's just about my particular philosophy.

I'm sorry you gotta deal with it though, but I honestly haven't the slightest idea what to tell you on that.

To tell the truth, I'm asking more the girls, than you, so don't worry...Except if you mean that you know the answer, but you can't speak here where girls are listening...lol

this looks like the stuff I was writing when I was eighteen. no offense, seriously.

I agree with the sentiment. I don't think it works as poetry.

it's much too much straightforwardly didactic, for me. the Hunger Games reference made me go ehhhhhh.

subversive writing is great. but the sorta instructional stuff, big no-no, for me.

Weird that you chose diamonds as, "critical to man and his kind"... They can also be called dull colored rocks men fight over that make things harder and turn into deadly lasers when you put energy into them, which isn't a very good metaphor for a woman and "her kind."

Actually, "they're diamonds" goes along with "But humans of the female persuasion are more than pearls, they're diamonds;". That's why after diamonds I added the semicolon to represent another, separate thought. I would've added the diamond line along with the pearl line, but the stanza would've been too long for my liking and wouldn't flow as nicely.

'Preciate the comment, though. :)

When I say dull colored rocks it's because that's how they start out when you find them until they are polished; Diamonds, not women.
