Girlfriend Material

When did you become so entitled?


To pick and choose if a girl is good enough for you.

You’d be lucky to have a girl like me or any of us girls you put in the same category.

What if we don’t want to be qualified as ‘worthy’?

We just want a right to be,

With the eyes of a small mind judgment free.


Drop your misconceptions,

The conditioned lessons.

If you gave things a chance,

Opened your mind and shut your eyes

To how you think we should see,

You might be surprised by fate and her company.


I’m not made from material, girlfriend or wife.

Not made for a category, labelled: not right.

How would you feel if you stood in her light?

It’s not much to respect a woman's equal right.


We’re not another kind of species,

Just humans with different features.

But you take it upon yourself to act the local preacher,

Making generalised statements for a woman to engrave,

Rating compatibility on the way a girl should behave.


But patients is a virtue not made for some,

Should she be branded for a human condition?

Can’t you look past a premature night?

Remove the disgust that ties your mind,

To the reasons why she would never be right.


'Girls just wanna have fun' didn't you hear

But without the fear,

Of her name disrespected.

Why is it so different for you, you’re so invested

On frowning down at the same species,

Just with different features.


When did you become so entitled?
