Ode to the Uterus

After “Hiding” by Florence and the Machines

I think you thrive
When all the world is burning 
So do I
So do I
I think you thrive
And we both know why
You bleed rivers
So do I 
So do I

Men all claim  that you are weak
Yet they crave your garden sweet
Crying, whining, never ends
Never wishing to befriend.

I know that your thriving
I know there’s parts of you flourishing 
You don’t have to explain it
Just know that we’re still okay
Whatever day
We’re okay
We’re okay

I know you’ve struggled
To cultivate fertile land 
So you bleed too much
So do I
So do I
And it’s the price we pay
That’s keeping us intertwined
But if you give up
So will I 
So will I

Men all claim that you are weak
Yet they crave your garden sweet
Crying, whining, never ends
Never wishing to befriend.

I know that your thriving
I know there’s parts of you flourishing 
You don’t have to explain it
Just know that we’re still okay
Whatever day 
We’re okay
We’re okay

I know I seem crazy
This minds not fit for growing
But if you let me, please
I will prove to be strong

Men all claim that you are weak
Yet they crave your garden sweet
Crying, whining, never ends
Never wishing to befriend.

I should befriend
(Crying, whining, never ends) I should befriend
Never wishing to befriend.
I know that you're thriving
I know there’s parts of you flourishing
You don’t have to explain it.
(Crying, whining, never ends)

We’re okay
We’re okay.
