Menstruation is Sin

I often feel like my

Menstruation is a punishment

That I bleed because

I sin,

And that I am lesser

Because of it.

I dream of being

Free of this burden

But in order to do that

I must cut myself open

And bleed, even more

Controlled, I suppose

Even monitored

But still

Loads more bleeding

To make the bleeding stop

What a bunch of garbage

I should just be able

To stop

Like my dad said

Control your period

Hold it in!

Fucking

Goddamn.

I find it incredulous

That tampons, pads and menstrual cups

Are not free, readily available

To all citizens.

It shouldn’t be

So revolutionary

To let a woman

Hide her sin.
