You determine my worth from

You determine my worth from the length of my skirt

You shame me for my femininty

my worth is my own, my power is my sexuality

you're afraid of the power we hold

because under all the folds you can see our strength

you try to mask you fear

but it is clear

you are scared of our ability

to destroy the patriarchy

because then what?

you try and run from the truth

but you cant deny the proof

women are power
