Respect The Womb

Wombs. 

It’s where we all come from

And it would be wise to 

Respect

Them.

Too many times

It’s taken upon

Men

To neglect 

Them.

Degrade them.

And even

Rape them.

Like women ain’t the ones 

Who

Birthed them.

Where’d they 

Come from?

As if we don’t take it

upon ourselves 

To bear them,

To nurture them,

And to love them.

Us, 

Wo-men.

 

Yet it’s known,

It takes a strong woman

To raise a strong man.

One who’s not going to

Belittle 

Or be spiteful

Of what a woman 

Can’t or can.

Rather candor 

About 

Our equivalences.

Instead of using rude dismiss-es.

 

Why not

Banter 

For us?

To reflect,

To praise,

To debate,

For the same

Admiration 

That a Queen 

Should have.

 And a king 

Would have.

Receiving this

Mutual respect.

Is a simple

Request;

For as long as 

the womb

Blooms

And a 

Mother 

Projects.

Our world
