Step into the Light


Your mind is your own, uncontrolled
Don’t believe all that you are told

Be good, be quiet and well behaved
Do not cry, or scream, be brave
You’re just a girl and very weak
Be tactful always when you speak

The world is bigger than you think
You just may find your missing link

You can’t be seen dressed like that
It’s really ugly when you’re fat
No acting out, don’t be extreme
When frustrated, never scream

To other thoughts open your mind
Space and freedom you may find

Be kind, reserved, restrain yourself
Put your emotions on a shelf
It may be safe not to be heard
Simply following the herd

Step into the light
