Society is a contradiction.
It is wrapped up in its
little white lies.

Girls should not hate themselves,
yet they are to fit the
impossibly high standards.
A coincidence
this is not.

Boys should be more sensitive,
yet they are judged and labeled
as babies when they show emotion.
A coincidence
this is not.

Boys should respect women,
yet when a girl is *****
it is her fault due to her actions.
A coincidence
this is not.

Women should never be hit by men,
yet women may hurt men
as they please.
A coincidence
this is not.

We are society,
and we have
greatly contradicted ourselves.
This is a huge knot.
One which we can
not undo.

Every single one of us makes up the mess
that is society today.
