Feminist World

Feminist World

A Poem by Akshay

I have these ideas, I have these answers to your questions
All the tigress's want so much, they want it all
All alone in the night, these are my inhibitions
They want to be equal, but they won't ever make the first call

Wouldn't it be wonderful to live when only I could vote
only I had the power and only I could sit on the throne
When I could ban her from seeing other people
she's an animal, and I'm the zoo keeper
She'll sit in the house, make food, look after the children, 
dress them so I can go out with them and leave her behind
But, when I come home at night, I want her to touch me soft, dance on my fingers, 
be in my palm, I'll try to be kind

Feminist world
the only difference between then and now is that they're afraid to say the things they acted on back then
Feminist world
the only difference is that women always bore the weight of the world, they just never cried about it like you and your friend Ken

These are true thoughts in my mind
Well, isn't the peahen a funny thing
the peacock chooses one as they are lined
I can hear them, they always cringe
they sound like dragging teeth on a board

Wouldn't it be wonderful to live when only I was allowed to grow old
she's supposed to be beautiful and look like rainbows
When I could ask her for money, for she married me
I'm just that good, aren't I?
She'll leave her old life behind, make me feel at home, 
make me everything I wanted, when I was done, 
I'd leave her behind
She'll leave everything behind for me,
her friends, her parents, her life
for I'm an Alexander, aren't I?

Feminist world

Feminist world.

These are ideals that they had
it never was like this, but they believed in it
These are their morals, but don't say anything about their mother
they'll get mad, she's a God, not a girl
Doesn't really feel natural, but that's how it is

Isn't it wonderful to be the one she can be herself around 
where she can cry and you comfort her through the dawn
What a life they all were missing,
coming home to a smile and kisses
It's all so wonderful to have someone finally understand me,
she sits in front, her eyes make everything seem so familiar and easy

Feminist world,
it was never like this
Feminist world,
they are roses without thorns
Feminist world,
dig in your heel, "would you like a house that has a front lawn?"

There is a very important message in this, that is for sure. It is truly an amazing write my friend. So different from most styles that I have seen. It seems almost like a song. I love that you are making it known that Feminists aren't about taking over, they are about having equality. Well done.
