Patriarchy

Patriarchy

patriarchy is not only murder,
rape or physical abuse

it is also when you police us with laws
and when societies shame our rights to choose

we have the right to choose our attire
and to choose our beliefs
and to choose independence
and to choose our education
and to choose or not choose abortion
and to choose or not choose procreation
and to choose where we come and go
and to choose our relationships
and to choose our friendships

we simply have the right to choose
we have other rights, too

we have the right to live without fear
the right to express ourselves
the right to be heard
the right to be seen

patriarchy is more than just a few tragedies

we simply have the right to be free
