I Am Not A Man

I Am Not A Man

written by: Gypsie-Ami Offenbacher-Ferris


I am not a man
do not try to mold
me into your image

You are not a woman
do not deem to understand
my mind, my body, my soul

I am a woman
I own this female body
I have been gifted with

Do not dictate to me what
to do with the seed of your loins
released in your pleasure

Do persecute, arrest and prosecute
those who pleasured themselves
without care or responsibility

Do not persecute, arrest or prosecute
a woman’s right to decide
what is best for her and her body
