She sells her body

Her glistening eyes that once were a calm ocean now behold a burning rage

Cover your legs they said, no crop tops they said, it’s not the right age

She ditched the stilletos for they were provocative they said

But that didnt prevent it from happening, nor did the saffron on her head

Neither the concrete structure she’d go for praying with flowers and her soul to offer

Nor did the society she desperately tried to fit in tried to take the pain off her

Her cries for help were answered by pretentious display of sympathy

But they soon dried up , along with the expectations of their empathy

It’s strange how she was left alone to fight her battles by herself

And now since she finally stopped trying and decided to give in to her fate

She sells her body they say

Got no morals, just a will and a way

She aint fit to live in our society they diss

Holding her guilty for enjoying such bliss ….

      1. I hate being THAT person but I did not know how to PM you here. Really love your writing. I never had anyone help me and wound up publishing a poem with a misspelled word and it drives me cra cra. I did it out of love LOL. ๐Ÿ˜†

      1. I think we had a sense of rebellious and ‘telling us what to do’ was a stimulus to find the opposite to do. I lived through the sixties (obviously I am ancient) but loved that decade ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep writing, you are very good ๐Ÿ™‚
