Go Forth and Multiply

My fallopian tubes have been tied

To the idea that I must go forth and multiply

Much of what is expected of me

Is to be a garden and sow someone’s seeds

But we have been given the ability

To know the world is overpopulated

There are already flowers in every corner

Reaching for light and dying of thirst

So why must I be responsible for birth

SWD 08/2018


Sunday night’s episode of Sharp Objects touched a nerve when the women in the garden began telling Camille she will never fully know love or that her heart will have a piece missing until she feels life grow inside of her. They also said something a long the lines of “religion and science both tell us that giving birth is the purpose of women.” It took everything I had for my eyes not to roll out of my head.
