3 strong women and their bold poetry that just says it how it is

The Joys of Motherhood – FreeQuency

“…who will see criminal before child… I can’t take it for granted that they won’t kill my son… there’s something about being Black in America that has made motherhood sound like mourning …”

Used – Shelby Birch

“He called me a queen and I blushed, but it wasn’t because I was worthy of it, it’s because I was convenient …”

Shrinking Woman  – Lily Myers

“She says she doesn’t deprive herself, but I’ve realised she only eats dinner when I suggest it… women shrinking, making space for men into their lives… I have been taught accommodation. My brother never thinks before he speaks. I have been taught to filter.
