Society Killed The Teenager

Society Killed The Teenager So you want to be a princess, and save the prince yourself? Or take steps on the moon? Can’t you see I won’t let you do that? I’m worse than even your parents, you see, I’m society! Ever play with toys that are meant for boys? The other kids laughed at you? You’re a girl, get away from action figures! I’ll train you to be who I want you to be. I’m society. Kiss a girl, kiss a boy, who do you want to be? I’ve told you before; you’re a girl not a boy, Learn to be who you should be. Listen to you? No, listen to me, I’m society! Everyone says to be yourself, but they Don’t actually mean it. The truth of the matter is He’s not a boy, and he can’t become one. Everyone listen to me! Teenager, teenager, who are you? Everyone tells me, you’re… Expecting! Not again, girl, did you listen to me? Abort this mission? No, you’re Church screams pro life! Get rid of it, keep it, it should be your choice, Everyone has a different advice, but listen to me and only me. Really, this was easy, you see. They listen to me, and I tell them, who I want them to be. I’m society.

A poem I wrote for a Satire Project in school to satirize life without choice to be ourselves.
