What is it with people like you?
You treat everything a competition,
all in the name of public acknowledgment.
You flaunt your fortunes,
clearly fishing for compliments.
What is it with men like you?
The more women you’ve been with,
the more manly you feel.
You flaunt them like mere trophies,
just to support your so-called masculinity.
Seriously, what is it?
Is your ego that fragile?
Do I have to avoid such vile
even when the world keeps telling me
#notallmen are like you?
I need solid proof,
not the same damn,
I deserve more to convince me
that not everyone is
part of this circus.
