Feminism is the radical notion that women are people said someone famous. That sums up feminism better than any long winded definitio...

My pain is a democracy

My pain, so real,
in every vein of mine,
like the life blood, 
passed to me from my mother; 
is it blood, or is it brine ?

For the water of my eyes,
salty, tangy to the tongue.
These are but ruby red drops 
turned into brine.

This churning in the pitless cavern 
into which aches coil up,
then spring on me unbidden-
they don't choose the right time.

My pain is a democracy 
anarchy ruins the state of my mind.
All happiness, fleeting,
will soon take flight.

In pain, this body thrives
and makes to float away with me,
when, as a ton of iron, it drags me down 
to the bed of the sea.

Finally, I'm alive.
