Why does it hurt?

Folder: 
Voice

Yes, I am a woman

But does that give you the right to say that I am weak

To say that I am worthless 

To say that I deserve nothing 

To say that I hold no value 

To say that I only belong in the kitchen 

To say that I am a possession 

That can be sold, bought, owned and used 

 

Why do you take your anger and frustration out on me?

Blame me for every wrong thing in your life

Beat me to the point where I can't even recognise myself

 

Am I not also human just like you?

Don't I bruise just like you?

Don't I bleed just like you?

Don't I breathe just like you?

Don't I have a beating heart just like you?

 

So why do you treat me like the dirt on your shoe?

Do you know the pain you are putting me through?

Or do you just not care for me anymoe?
