Right Of My Reproductive Freedom

25 men voted to advance the bill

And a female governor signed it.

I asked myself

where my *right of choice* is?

To have or not to have a child

is the question of MY concern.

I may not have this child and

your judgement on this is spurned.

No, I am not a Marionette

and no, you are not the do-gooder.

To bring this seed into life

is not your decision to make, monsieur.

Womb: a female hormone responsive secondary sex organ

*Female*, the definition says.

*I* am your mother, your sister, your wife

I am a Human

25 bodies with penis and 1 body with a vagina

can't control the most personal decision of my life.

Do you know what it is like to be raped?

Do you know what it is like to have a relative commit incest on you?

The willingness to live dies inside you

And you expect me to bring a life

from the semen of my rapist

in my world of blues.

Dear government,

I want you to get out of my womb.

You don't own this.

If my uterus is a Paradise and

the seed inside me, a god's child,

you are the grim reaper

of the death of a body twice.
