I wish I could discuss my body without being ashamed
I wish I could discuss my mind without being labelled a weirdo
I wish I could talk and understand
what I am feeling and why I am feeling
Whats the point in knowing about cultures and civilisation
About lands and inventions and formulas
When I ignore my mind and my body.
Why should I be made to feel ashamed of my private parts
Why should I be made to ignore my feelings and thoughts
When I hurt my finger, I know first aid
But when I feel hurt and alone, I feel ashamed to ask for aid
How will I ever know, if what I think and feel is normal
When sex education and psychology are not, subjects normal.
Whats the point of MY life, I want to think and ask
But let me get on with my algebra, otherwise I will be taken to task
