Power And Respect - Poem by Giselle Miller

Skank, Slut, Bitch, Whore
Vile words all women deplore
Rusted chains link us as one
Marking the objects we have become

Lewd names that we all share
Weighing us down, Leaving us bare
Foul prisons cage our shame
In a world where we are to blame

With sharpened blades that cut and blister
We shed the blood of fellow sisters
Betrayal drips, screaming, What hypocrits!
At the same crime we knowingly commit

Acid corroding our self respect
Scar our skin like birth defects
Clouding the eyes of our so-called kings
Giving them power, leaving us with nothing
