A STEREOTYPE is a popular idea about a group of people.
Just Because poems should be personal and fight against
stereotypes you may have encountered personally or have seen.
It could have to do with gender, race,
height, background or anything else. Try to challenge the false ideas people might have about you.
Just because I’m a girl
Doesn’t mean I can’t lead
Doesn’t mean I need to be submissive
And doesn’t mean I need to change myself completely to prove my affection
Just because I’m vocal
Doesn’t mean I am stubborn
Doesn’t mean I am wild and reckless
And doesn’t mean I’m inherently a rebel
Just because I’m ambitious
Doesn’t mean I don’t have any emotions
Doesn’t mean I can’t be homely and adaptive
And doesn’t mean I don’t care about relationships
Why do people judge those
Who don’t follow the masses
Who take the path less travelled by..
Why can’t people accept that it’s okay not to follow societal norms
When will everybody unite and accept each other’s differences
When will be the dawn of a new era?
