The Quiet and Generous.

When you’re the ‘good girl’
They don’t expect you to feel,
They don’t expect you to speak,
They don’t expect you to have expectations.
Because you’re not aggressive,
Because you’reΒ  amiable,
because you don’t always have the best comebacks,
and you don’t always make the best first impressions,
Because you’re timid,
because you’re charming,
because you show everything even when you try not to,
because no one likes vulnerable people.

When you’re the ‘good girl’
You don’t find love,
You only find heartbreak.
You don’t get what you want,
You just get rejected,
Because you don’t know how to ‘keep’ them,
You don’t know how to play games,
Because you don’t have enough experience.
You don’t know how to be alluring,
because you seem naive,
because you’re somehow invisible.

When you’re the ‘good girl’
You’ll always be misunderstood,
You’ll be labeled ‘uncool,’ maybe ‘weird’ but never loved,
never given the attention you deserve,
never getting the ones you want,
you get judged all the time,
You are that person who people love to joke about,
Your feelings are what they always forget,
because you live in a society,
that praises the bad and the bold,
the loud and obnoxious,
the ones who don’t like to sit in a corner.

When you’re the ‘good girl’
You’ll get teased for it,
you’ll often question it,
you’ll even get blamed for it,
and you might lose some people.
But when you’re the good girl
you learn to stop caring about what they think
or what they say
you don’t change yourself to fit in or
change for someone else
you stay the same
because you may be the reason
someone believes in good girls again
because you may be the person
someone else is praying for.

When you’re the good girl,
don’t be bad for them,
let them be good for you.
