In a Man’s World

Shun the rules taught to women in a man's world. Rise up, appreciate yourself and be the woman you want to be.

You are a woman they said,
Not a man with rank instead.
Not your fault lassie,
That’s just how they were bred.

Why the difference I asked ?
Shall I show you ,they said.
Disgust, disquiet and sick,
What else can you expect from a prick?

You can only be a pretty face,
Higher studies is just a laze,
You have to be a wife someday,
Lose the weight or you’ll be in dismay one day

A woman should be two things ,
Classy and slick
Why can’t they be
Sassy and thick ?

Body shaming should be put to stop
Demeaning a woman is all they do chop-chop
All a woman sometimes needs is to uplift,
So why don’t you prod her to deadlift 

Be strong, be brave and a lot of grace 
All you need is yourself to embrace 
Be kind and also confident, 
Because a smile is the only indent.
