Idols and Cultural Standards

Growing up idolizing Taylor Swift

She sure knew how to play the boy game

Maybe one day Prince Charming will get the drift

Girls wearing short shorts and crops, Sorry I shop that thrift

But I play an outsider not desperation shame

I ain't trying to blame

You probably think I am lame

How I ride my metal insolo shift 

 If only gentlemen still wanted to save a dame 

Instead of enjoying a one night stand testosterone lift

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world

This piece was a great combination of goofy and serious. Our adolescent brains naturally find someone to look up to, and as we grow we are expected to follow the trends. In the same breath, teens/young adults will face problems with love and lust-- knowing the difference between who is there for you. Ultimately, your poem dipicts a few struggles growing up and i appreciate you sharing your views on them. Continue the good work!
