women by Jake Ormrod

forget the inventions
the social change
and the love
forget that one held us in their womb for months
because I’m sick of trying to explain why I care
that women
like me
deserve a world that is fair
that their worth is not defined by my errant gaze
or how they make this world better in innumerable ways
they’re beings
they exist
and for me that’s enough
to ensure that their lives are not needlessly tough
so today
of all days
lets please come together
and realise that genitals are not our common tether
that just like us
they are human
and deserve equality
deserve a life, a world, and a body that is free
