Reclaiming We

img_2174

I was not born with the gift of thought for
my intellect to be silenced in the shadow of a man,
nor the gift of speech with
the purpose of remaining silent in
fear of making a man feel any lesser than
a man- because how depraved would
it feel to be seen in the same light as a woman,
who’s body is sought after for its
intrinsic beauty, but not to be seen
without calling into question the character
behind the legs, that have been pre-possessed
by the egos of the men that we keep our tongues
tied and intellect transparent to uphold-
I was not born a body belonging to a
master that is not my own conscious thought and will
