Goth Girlgoth 

Goaded  by  the others  for  your  style

Open mouthed  they  stare  at  you

Trends  don’t  touch  you, black  is  black  all the  while

Hold  on to  your  principles girl  and  smile.


Glitter’s  black in  your hair , people  stop, people stare

Ignore  them  just  go  your own  way

Raven is  as  raven  does about  the others  you don’t care.

Let  the haters have  their say, you  will show  them and have  your day.

    Very cool poem Willow. i enjoyed it. not sure what if anything could be done to show them that their affectation diminishes their opportunities in this world.

    Black is always classic.
    The name/label may change through time, but this sort of soul can be traced far back through history? (assuming it’s not all just for appearance and show.)
    Mulling over similarities in Literature, art, music over the years and decades.

    This is a very sweet thing to do….and in an acrostic as well!

      Thank you Zed, the Goths, using the term in the modern tense, are usual the outsiders the ones who want to be hidden by a mask. They usually flourish when ready. As for Acrostic poems I do love to do them. xxxx

    The label portrays a time and / or a feeling. 🙂

    Fun…. Contemporary Goth culture of course is adopted by those who want to stand out, who feel necessary to complain about those who complain. I’d say it’s its a big part of why they do what they do. A teen age rebellion thing most here would say. I would include calling it a coping mechanism to birth oneself into adulthood and society. Or it could just be an extreme Edipus complex where they use it as a mechanism to show how much they simply hate dad. My teenaged son used a rainbow Mohawk haircut – but I think only because I specifically forbade it. In any event, I don’t know who the young woman is that modeled for the face portrait above, but she is one of the most beautiful young women I have ever seen, makeup with – or not with – standing….

      Yes John you may well be right about the modern teenagers but true Goths have been around for centuries! I agree a lot of it a coping mechanism and a rebellion against parents!! OH! yes she is a lovely girl!!
