Girls are not made of sugar.
We do not melt under a single touch.
Our hearts aren’t made of glass,
They’re made of muscle,
and will never shatter under your crushing blow.
Our skulls aren’t filled with poetry.
They’re filled with pictures and broken desires, dreams and hopes.
Girls’ hair is not made of silk,
It is instead, made up of dead cells that we hide behind,
But not from you, for you’re nothing to fear.
Our hearts are only there to pump our blood.
Our hair is only there to cover our heads.
Our muscles are there to help us move.
And our brains are there to help us think.
We are not there for you.
We can survive without you.
Our bones refuse to break.
And we’ll always end up standing,
Because It’s only you,
Who can’t survive without us.
