They say wear your hair down.

They say wear your hair tight to your head.

They say go to defense classes.

They say hold your keys.


They say don't wear leggings. 

They say don't wear shorts or skirts. 

They say don't ignore.

They say don't engage.


They don't say stop looking at people as objects. 

They don't say it's not your fault.

They don't say you can get help after.

They don't say your life has any value. 

The author's comments:

I wrote this in light of everything going on in our world right now. If you're ever harassed or r*ped or catcalled or anything else: please remember ITS NOT YOUR FAULT! I know how easy it is to believe that it's something that you did, but it isn't. The only problem is the person doing the action. Not you.
