In a world that doesn’t want women to control their bodies
I am here to make a statement
Being a she by anatomy or by living your reality
Grants you the same opportunities as those who are he
Yet those he’s get to hem and haw upon what we do with our she
That shit ain’t fair
You reserve the right to choose
if that heartbeat is actually a sign of life
When heart cells in a Petri palpitate the same way the muscle in your chest cavity does
If you want to birth trauma and have our mamas mama bring God into it
God was there when my mothers husband decided these legs divided were worth more than my purity
So throwing religion at me won’t help this
The inability to control yourself because a substance has influenced you
The fact that you can’t see me for me because subjectively I’m objectivity
Saying I was dressed provocatively and I was asking for it won’t help this
I was wearing jeans and a hoody
And if I wasn’t....
Would that validate the lack of consent?
Would that validate the lack of common sense?
Of course not.
