I refuse to feel shame,
For the fullness of my spacious hips,
Which cannot eclipse the puckered roundness of belly,

That etch the profound and glorious journeys,
Of a ripe life fully lived.

Which mark a rhythm to my femininity,
The stains polluted with indignity.

I refuse to feel shame,
That I will not go quietly nor submissively into the night,
How I will fight the good fight using my fists and my insight,
Because senseless indifference is abhorrent to me,

For becoming the force I was always born to be.
