Brat.

Small minded people
Too scared to say no
‘Cause people might stare

She was an unruly child
They said with a shrug
She will be someone else’s
One day soon
A problem for a future boy

An imagined life
In the shadow of their own
All she ever wanted
Was to be acknowledged
Her feelings validated
Not explained away
Like dandelion wisps
In a breeze

Care enough to be angry
SAY SOMETHING!
A rudderless ship drifts out to sea
Floating with the current
She never felt home
