I know women that...(poem) by Cassie Kinney

I know a woman who can barely write, spell, or read,
And I know many women that are scared to eat.
I know many women that have had kids at sixteen,
And some that are desperately mean.
I know a woman who sells her body to pay her bills,
I know a girl that slept with her step dad for pills.
I know a woman that's husband dug her a grave,
And shoveled the dirt to the kitchen in a rage.
I know a woman who never came out to her husband,
I know a woman that married her second cousin.
I know sisters that were molested by their uncle,
And I know sisters that were raped in a struggle.
I know a married women that has yet to have sex,
And I could go on and on because women's lives are complex.
