Social Justice Poetry

Good Girl | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Bright, shiny,
Absolutely beautiful.
Bursting with excitement,
Potential, optimism, intelligence.

A whole life of
Unlimited possibilities awaits,
Places to go, people to meet,
Dreams to be made real.

Not so fast,
We do things a certain way
In this family,
In this town.

Clamp on rusty shackles of
Societal expectations, constrictions.
Know your place,
Be a good girl.
