not cry

Whoever said that a girl
can't cry after the age of 13
Like we are supposed to suck it up
and let them treat us
like some lower life forms
with a smile on our faces
as they eye up our breast
and check out our legs
I kind of feel like I am on a used car lot
and I am the deal of the week
Console me in a way
that I may not understand
as I pour my heart out
to a poetry book
but the answers don't lie
in the places that I wish
that I could find them
Tell me again how I am such a big girl
and mentally I should feel
different than I have before
as I watch my life pass me bye
I tell myself no matter what
I am not going to cry
