As a woman

Used and discarded,
raped and bombarded.
We are told to stay silent,
stay in the shadows.
Why are we mistreated?

Without us there would be no life,
without us there would be no men,

who love us.
Men who hate us.
Men who don't credit us for the amazing non-stop life-givers they truly are.

We sprout families from our womb,
then told to keep quiet about the everyday choices we make?

They use this to their advantage
like cows in a dairy farm.

take, take, take.
do we even have a choice?
rape, rape, rape.
do we even have a voice?

Whether cis, trans, fluid or nonbinary,
we are told from the beginning
to fit into the heteronormative, restricting image
conservative men created for us.


God made Eve for adam, not adam
For Eve

man will always rely on Woman for
simple tasks. If only
there was
way to 
stop this 

is this all
we are??
All we will
ever be?

maybe one day we'll be able to open our minds farther than the limits of society.
