Something happened

A long time ago

To make me feel unsafe

 

Probably

A very minor thing

I can’t remember

 

Maybe it was when

The other boys

Told me I looked like a girl

 

And laughed at me

Though it was

Just the truth

 

Sometimes I think

It would be easier

To have been a girl

 

Because men

Are afraid

Of the laughter
