Little girls like me


We went from getting our hair pulled by the little boys who liked us

And the little boys pushing us on the swing

And the little boys asking us to the movies

And the play ground hugs behind the teachers backs

And getting notes and candy slipped into a locker

And the good morning and goodnight texts from those little boys

To being rated on a scale from one to ten

To getting pushed onto the ground and being taken advantage of

The men doing but not asking

The secrets we weren’t supposed to tell to anyone

The mean slut shaming notes slipped into our lockers

The constant comments that slowly crush you

I wish more than anything that those little boys come back

I wish more than anything girls in today’s world wouldn’t have to worry about the clothes they wear

Or the pictures they take

Or the man behind her on the quiet street

Because those little boys

Are way less scary than the scary men who think it’s ok to hurt little girls

      This is really good... A true story and a sad remember of how it used to be and how it is now. Written beautifully nonetheless.
