Women! We have no choice but to be Warriors!
Our bodies are stolen from us every month by Nature
forced to bleed and endure intense pain that takes our breath away,
brutally shoved into the asylum to face our internal demons as the emotions rage,
forever questioning and answering who we are, what we are made of.
But do not fall into despair, I say.
Use the pain to strengthen your resolve,
the emotions to develop your character,
and look upon your blood and see in it your life.
Do not think of this as your curse,
but relish in the fact that it comes from our bodies –
forged through torture, pain, and despair,
we create a being filled with strength, determination, and perseverance.
We have no choice but to be Warriors!
