Social Justice Poetry

Identity Theft | A Social Justice Poem by Julia Hones

She carries her gender like a heavy bag,
conceals her ethnicity to care for her safety.
She’s been penalized for refusing to believe
she has been molded out of a rib;
covering her body parts she learned
that predators cannot be deterred.

Now she hides from a male stare lest she be misunderstood.
