Exactly Like Other Girls

I am exactly like other girls
I bleed
Cry
Fight
For what I believe
For my lies
That you
Made me live
To get
by
In paper houses
Covered
In
Kaleidoscope tears
Where Me Too
Didn’t count
Because
It was
Always
About
You
I fight
For
My life
For the right to conceive
Or not
For the voice to choose
What goes between my legs
When I want
And no
Other
Time
Try me
And you’ll feel
The steel of my smile
As I slice
And rip
Your humanity to shreds
As you
Did
Mine
I am like other girls
Exactly like other girls
With
Hopes
And dreams
And aspirations
That don’t involve your
Damnation
Your six inch sword
Doesn’t make you my ruler
My judge
My jury
And if you
Stab me
With it
Without
My
Consent
I will come back
Ten times
Stronger
I will
Fight
For my rights
And hers
And theirs
For I am exactly like other girls
And we are tired
So Very Tired
Of
The old days
The good ole
Boys
Club
It’s always been this way
You say?
We’re here
To make sure
It will never be Again
You entered the world
From a woman
Your
First
Caress
Came from
A
Vagina
And yet
Instead of worship
The mound
You were born from
You betray it
At every chance
You find
Because you can
You say
Because that’s how
It’s been
How it will
Always be
But we are done
Though our touch may be soft
And our skin supple
Our will is ironclad
And you will
Feel
Our fury
For
We
Are
Women
Warriors
Life givers
And we
Will
Survive
Because
We are Exactly Like Other Girls
And together
We are
Unstoppable
