Poem - Womanhood

The poem “Womanhood” was inspired by the quote, “Womanhood is like: performs femininity and suddenly everyone’s nicer to you.” This was combined with thoughts about how terf behavior is anything but nice to those being attacked. The end result is a projection, rejected by the author, of terf ideas.


Womanhood

Womanhood lays beyond
the half-measures circumscribed
by the ones without designs
gifted by the realm of birth
this is the statement some embrace
building walls around themselves

that secret garden securely kept
from interlopers that may transgress
pretenders are surely damned
by biology and not desires
no matter what may be felt
the physical is quite enough

identity is deemed a lie
the trick evoked by Satan’s spawn
with the gatekeepers keeping guard
against intrusion that would end all
the greatest comfort is with the known
femininity inside four walls.
