Oh gender role

Oh men...
The strong ones subjugate
And the weak ones prostrate
And the lack of equanimity
Leaves me at a loss

Oh women...
The powerful ones manipulate
And the quiet ones regulate
We are our own enemy
In the game of equality

Oh me oh my...
At times I'm girly and silly
Or boyish and rough
Or womanly and gentile
Or manly and strong

Oh gender role...
The world is hard enough
Without your restrictive decree
My gender may be female
But my personality is made of me
