Expectations

A solemn smile hides high hopes
Because he high hopes to wear high heels,
Like his,
Shhhh
Barbie.

A forlorn face hides hateful heartache
Because her huge heart hopes for hot wheels,
Like her,
Shhhh
Brother.

So
Shhhh
Do not let society hear,
For some would swell

With disgust.

“No girls play with cars,
And no boys play with dolls.”

But a girl be who she be,
And a boy do as he do,
Because no matter the gender,

You deserve to be you.
