Another Day in October

Another Day in October

A Poem by gabiaimee

This is Halloween, so here's to the kids.

Here's to the kids who
feel too afraid to put on another costume.
are more comfortable when everyone else is disguised.
wear a mask every day.
want to feel like a kid again.

Here's to the girls who
are pressured to look perfect.
feel too insecure to dress up.
just want to feel pretty.
want to look like someone else.

Here's to the boys who
know appropriation is not funny.
don't want to see girls in nylon and netting.
feel more relaxed when faces are hidden.
don't care if they're too old for today.
