Funny Life Poem

Struggle Between The Sexes

My name is Sarah, I'm 22 and I'm Lebanese. This is one of my favorite poems that I've written. It's not my best, but I love it. I wrote it one cold winter's eve for a creative writing class. I hope you enjoy it.

Yes, please do
It seems this will never end
This struggle between the two
sexes
Yes I am WOMAN and you are man
You the better version of our species
Me
I am cursed
Because I plucked the apple?
or maybe because I have a heart
See when I came out of your
rib
I took your heart too
and
with it, your brain as well
And you see
now I have the two

Without me
you cannot live
because I am the tool
You see
along with your heart and your mind
I took your child too
and your blood runs through me
but you have nothing of me
in you
You walk around with a couple of spheres
and carry your seed
but what is your seed without me?
an apple tree?
Even that it couldn't
possibly be!
I am WOMAN and you are man
you the privileged specie
you
DO NOT
menstruate!
