Poem: why?

Why is this ‘posh’
And why am I judged?
Just because I don’t wear
Jeans, jeggings or jerseys?

Why is this ‘foreign’?
Why class me non kiwi,
When my style or appearance
Isn’t identical to yours?

Why can’t I dress
However I please
Without having a reason
Or someone to impress?

Why can’t you just compliment
Instead of make judgement
Or leave me alone,
Keep your thoughts to yourself.

[Poem by Melanie Magowan]
