How Dare You - Poem by Athena Benjamin

How dare you?
How dare you kick a man when he's down.
How dare you push her to the ground when no one's around.
Who do you think you are to make her feel like crap inside.
Who do you think you are to take her rights away.
who do you think you are to make fun of her because she's gay.

Don't tell her that she's nobody,
or convince her to be like everybody.
Don't change her because she's different,
reward her because she's confident.
Don't sit her down because she speaks out,
acknowledge her because her opinion matters.

Everybody's different in there own way,
that's what makes us the same.
