“Traveling alone enlightens,
Brightens minds, heightens senses,

When he goes, its all of that and more,
But does she go? Does she even want to go?
“I’d rather go with friends”, “I won’t like it”
Are heard far more than a yes with a smile
Is it her?
Or is it us? Us, the rest?
Telling her she’s better off home,
Better off hanging out with friends,
Better off staying in her comfort zone
Stepping out could cause chaos
Could let her stay unchecked,
We don’t want any trouble
(well, trouble, danger or rape)
But remember, a step out takes you closer to places
Places on the outside, places on the inside
On a hill where the sun comes bright
Her shining wings can illuminate the world
Even enlighten all of us
All the world at her feet, if only we let her go
She could use the solace, we could use the lesson.

It is high time that women truly understood their worth and place in society, and rightfully claimed it for their own good.
Albert Einstein pretty much nailed it when he said, “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
The crazy-haired genius was being eloquent about a facet of human nature that doesn’t really deserve that sort of consideration.
As an extension of this strange predilection, it’s in our nature to put things in their place and most people, in particular, simply cannot resist putting a woman in her place.
