My Body

My body should be mine to do with as I please
It is not a playground,
free way nor slippery path for
Disrespect, Battery , Assault or Abuse
Or an avenue for heat of the moment without MY permission
It is a narrow path to be respected
A smooth path that is a sanctuary of warmth and comfort
With boundaries
For I am created in the image and likeness of a Higher Being
Its is a sacred ground to be worshipped
It is a temple

very true!

I like this poem. This is what every woman should want for themselves, but social conditioning has made them disregard this everywhere... What you wrote is beautiful!

"Fight fire with fire, you'll end up with ashes."
"A charming lady does not follow the crowd, she is herself."
