Accept and Respect me

Pity and sympathy saturated my mind.
Anger gripped me,l was devastated.
As l learnt the story
That came with their glory.
The women with higher seats.
Gave in to many .
The director ,the Ceo,manager Sam.
The bedroom interviews.
The passes they benefited .
The appointments that went two way.
The sexually infected promotions
That’s the story
That came with their glory.

Sexual harassment is now like fashion.
My body belongs to everyone but me.
Because you are a man ,you forceful touch my body and make light of it.
I’m merely an object to your desires.

As you make your sexually charged comments.
I’m not supposed to be offended.
If l don’t like it,l’m just supposed to
Pretend that l do

For lewd looks are compliments
Wait a minute
You even make it quite clear ,a constant reminder that l’m lucky to be having a job.That
I’m invading a man’s world.
You are blind and ignorant to see l worked hard for it!
I actually sweated for it.

Walking around,l lose a step.
Because all you do is stare.
Wolf whistle
And expect your cat calls to have me falling to my knees.
And if l show my anger.
I’m stunted by labels.

A wife you have.
Why lust over a girl who still has dreams to teleport to reality.
In you l saw a father but you turned out to be an evil, filthy,merciless,shameless,heartless man with no brains.
You honestly want me to be quite and enjoy the music.
Stripping me of my dignity.
Making me feel threatened,uncomfortable and unwelcome.

I’m still in the same position.
Not because l don’t have the passes.
But l know how to hold my horses.

Success l want to attain with my brains and hands.
Not trade with my body.

I wish for a better world.
Where instead of my body,my work is appreciated.
Regardless of being a woman ,l’m accepted and respected.
