Stardust and Embers

So, I'm not really that much of a sappy, poetic, articulate person. I like to write adventure and sci-fi. But the point in adventures is stepping outside your comfort zone, so I'm giving a shot at poetry.
These poems don't exactly represent my feelings at the certain time, but these are words that have been swimming in my head and I'm terrified to not record them somehow, before they become lost. All of these are my poems, please give credit!

(Wish me luck! I've never done poetry before so sorry if it's bad)

22. poem 21

(Okay this poem is fueled by my feminism rage going on right now with that guy shooting those 7 girls who wouldn't have sex with him and I am so freaking mad)

[these poems may contain cursing/ possible triggering. Just a warning!]

When a woman kills

A man

She is labeled

As crazy,

But if a man kills

7 women

Because he is not

Entitled to her body

He is labeled as

Lonely,

That they should've

Given him a chance.

Only a few months earlier

A man killed a woman

Because she refused

To go to prom with him

As if a dance refusal

Is worth an innocent girls life

If a woman asks to date

She is desperate

If a man asks to date

She is shallow

Girls are taught

To cover up

Don't let anything show

But a man

Can take off his shirt whenever

A man can do what he wants

There are still people

That believe in the

"Friendzone"

As if

Being nice to someone

Gets you an automatic pass

Into their body

And when she says

"No"

She becomes

A bitch

But if she says yes

She's a slut

"Not all men are like that"

They say

Maybe so,

But enough men are like that

Where women are terrified

Of walking home alone

And hold their keys

Like daggers

And wear makeup

Like warpaint

And they are terrified

That their life will be taken

If they don't give you a pass

Into their body

"Boys will be boys"

"It's normal for teenage boys"

"We need sexual action to satisfy us"

"It wasn't rape, they were drunk."

"It's not his fault"

NO

I AM A HUMAN BEING

WITH HUMAN RIGHTS

AND I WILL NOT BE OBJECTIFIED

BY A MAN

WHO THINKS HE

DESERVES

MORE THAN

I DO

I AM NOT A SEX OBJECT

IF I SAY NO

I MEAN

NO
