A Kinda Life

For Malala who was shot in the head and left for dead & all the women and girls in the Gender War

Has life been kind to you? He said
As her heart stopped and bled
She sighed and shook her head
If I could’ve I would’ve fled

Life sucks for us ducks
What’s bad for the goose is good for the gander
Life is angled for the power of the boys den
It’s hard to be the shoved out hen

If Sallys had equal money
Blokes would lose the power to control the honey
If Janes could have equal learning
Guys would feel their egos burning

For thousands of years they have kept us down
They have snatched and held the gender crown
Marys have smiled behind a tear and frown
But now us Jennies must turn it all upside-down

Has life been kind to you? He queried
You look so tired and wearied
No, she stuttered
To see it you must be kind
Most Johns push our struggles from their mind.

When we talk of rape
They say ‘Peel a grape’
When we say that we’ve been battered
They say: To listen would leave me shattered
Man-made Sheila pain
Is silenced for their gain

Has life been kind to you? She said
I wish I could lie inside your bed
And have your life instead
Not be the prey – who is left for dead

Life sucks for us ducks
What’s bad for the goose is good for the gander
Life is angled for the power of the boys den
It’s hard to be the shoved out hen

For thousands of years they have kept us down
And they have snatched and held the gender crown
Marys have smiled behind a tear and frown
But now us Jennies must turn it all upside-down

Has life been kind to you? He asked
Has life been kind?

Sand Castle, Poetry by Kayla Barr

Genre: Female, Self, Life

Sand Castle
by Kayla Barr

I think of myself as strong,
Powerful.
I’ve fooled both myself and others.
Truth be told, I’m not.
Not in all aspects anyway.

I’m confident in the woman I have put forward.
Confident in the woman whose smiles and words of hope and encouragement
have become as much a part of her as the birthmark on her left hip.
Beneath the makeup lies a girl, locked away, and boarded up.
A girl who can be just as broken as those whom she reassures.

I smother her,
Weaken her.
Few know of this girl,
the girl who lies beneath the false façade.

Because it’s not right to crumble
in front of those already crumbling.
