River

You’ve covered me

Under the wraps

Of your misogyny

Tried to chain

My freedom,

Burying the laws

Of equality alive.

But tell me,

How do you cage

My belief

That’s growing within me;

Raging through my veins

Implanting its seeds

On minds

Not mine or yours?

How will you silence

My words

That I’ve whispered

Into ears,

Kissing the lips

Of another

As it leaves

To be whispered again?

So let me tell you

A secret

I’ve laid bare

Your eyes with cataracts

Of ego and pride

Fail to see.

What makes you think

You will win

Taking away my sword,

Sparing yourself red rivers

When I can kill

In rivers of blue?
