Wake Up, Women!
Jan 21, 2015
Pregnancy and childbirth are death-defying endeavors;
Though it is tempting from this reality to be severed.
The result of childbearing and rearing are not certain,
But even this truth is hidden behind a denial curtain.
The society in which you bear your children counts
As the only support on which the voice of reason mounts.
You and your children are temples of The Sacred Spirit;
Repeat this loudly, until the whole universe will hear it.
Refuse to have children until your society protects
Even the babies that the military and religion rejects.
We fool ourselves by believing that we're not heroes;
It is from our bloody bodies and beds that civilization rose.
Our men continue to kill each other, as if they will care
For all the women and children, through wars, they ensnare.
It is time for us to accept all the earth's children as our own,
And use our animal mother instincts to protect our homes.
