"There are poems inside of you that paper can't handle."

It's not even 12 o'clock and I'm in the principal's office again
"Your boobs are too big"
"You can wear skirts with a butt like that"
"We have this discussion almost everyday"
"We can't keep boys from staring"
"It's your fault"
It's my fault?
It's my fault?
How is it my fault?
13, 14 year old boys threatened to rape me daily
They stare at my chest until I react violently or hysterically
And it's my fault?
It's my fault they aren't taught better?
My fault they can't respect me?
Why am I sent home because they are distracted?
Why am I punished because of comment they make?
How does that make any sense?
Their words are harming me and it's my fault?
Their mothers are calling me a w****
Their teachers reprimand me when they do wrong
Their fathers praise this disgusting rape culture
No wonder this world's so corrupt
No wonder this generation acts how ever it wants
And some how, it's my fault
