Step Aside Stereotypes – Pallavi

Pallavi – One who lives outside your categories

Brave & Reckless

Step aside, all stereotypes
don’t label inks
she doesn’t just wear the color purple and pink
no more forbidding blues and blacks
she won’t take any flack.

Step aside stereotypes
this is a different kind of fairy land
This Cinderella wears sneakers
and doesn’t sit on bleachers
She’s her own kind of Snow White
who doesn’t need a prince
for she can rescue herself alright.
Don’t call her Sleeping Beauty
for she prefers a name
blue eyes and white skin are not her only fame.

So step aside stereotypes
She wears ballet shoes
and isn’t scared of walking on cinders.
She chooses to be well put or unkempt
chooses to smile, breathe fire, and sometimes even repent.
Her scars and contusions are her pride
and for all this she doesn’t apologize.
