women

we were thought to let them have
what we can provide
so that our bodies
can continue paying for our sins

we were thought to be what they
expected us to be
letting them tear our skin
and break our souls in pieces

we were thought that women are weak
and that protection is what
we shall seek
protection from the same men who hurt us.
