Uncomfortable, I lied down on the bed.
Denying to do all the chores, I moved my head.
Remembering the date, I bled last month
Was it the fourth or the seventh?
Felt the painful push and the unwanted blood,
It all came out with a terrifying thud.
More clothes to rinse hard and wash off the stains,
Red water in the sewage and through the drains.
Next day, I walk normal and sit just straight
Because Dad must not know the bad fate.
From gents, I should hide the pads and the pill,
Because handling bare bloodied bodies is a woman’s skill.
Fuck patriarchy, fuck these beasts,
Who can’t handle these genital miseries.
Why should I feel awkward to buy a pad?
Bleeding is okay, it’s the society that’s bad.
