She was taught all her life
boys will be boys but girls must remain chaste
this double standard didn't seem to breathe intellect
but to her seemed rather common place.
from the first time she felt
the power that lie between her tiny thighs
she fought the same demons
that made Eve open her eyes.
She began to question
and all that she was told.
self love ingrained too deep to believe
that by following nature
her soul would be sold.
Raised to seek knowledge
but to never question her place
because as we all know
boys will be boys
but little girls must be chaste.
Eyes wide open
heart closed tight
disdain began to brew
for the shame and guilt her gender was taught
when man and science knew the truth.
The gift God gave Eve was pleasure
2000 nerves with no other reason.
She began to think it was man alone
that felt she'd committed treason...
because as we've been taught
since day one began
girls must be chaste
but man will be Man.
