Why must I accommodate your white male needs
when we live in a men’s society that feeds
on such innocent people
who are not seen as equal?
Why must it be that I
donate to your controlled lie
when I am seen but not heard
and moments of oppression have occurred?
Why must I have to use my voice
when what I do with my body is not a choice
and what I wear is dictated
and what I do is judged and hated?
