At 16 I shouldn’t be paranoid.
I shouldn’t need to keep checking over my shoulder when I walk to my car
Or rapping my key chain around my wrist so tight it cuts off the circulation
I shouldn’t feel violated every time a guy rakes his eyes over my body
Or walk a bit fast when one is behind me
I shouldn’t be so gosh darn terrified to walk alone as a girl
Or lock my car door before it’s even shut.
Yet because of rape culture I will always be terrified
I’m really sorry I haven’t been on I’ve been so busy… And a lot has happened that o need to rant about
my insomnia has killed me the past 3 nights
