I’m a girl and I menstrate

Posted March 10, 2019 from Uganda

It’s a girl! Yesssss … I’m a girl and I menstruate

What? Another girl

Yeah, she’s so beautiful! Hmm beautiful! Beautiful. Period

And the baby girl grows and meets the world. Period

All eyes on her. Period

Don’t look at me with disgust. Period

Menstruation blood is the purest blood Period

Hold my hands when I menstruate, Period

My Period my identity Period

Hear me out Period

Care for me Period

Help me please Period

Period is Period. Period

Period is period not a sin Period

My Period my pride Period

Periodic Period defines who I am Period

Periodic period defines me, Period

My monthly Period is my pride Period

I menstruate, I’m still a child Period

Period! Period! Period!

Because I menstruate, I’m proud to be a woman, a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a niece, an Aunt, a granddaughter, a grandmother of the Earth reproducing herself. Period!

I’m a woman. I menstruate. Period!

Hello, Keronga,

I enjoy reading your poem. Period.

You are right, one of our identity as a woman is our menstruation. It is not a sin. It is part of who we are. The world will stop living is we cease menstruating.

Thank you for sharing! Happy Women’s Day coz On World Pulse,everyday is Women’s Day!
