Don't Shrink

You want me to squeeze into lines drawn for a child?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As if I could chisel away this womanhood I have earned!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As if I would erase the power of this body—⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The power to grow another body,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The strength to take two breaths, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to beat two hearts, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
to nourish two souls,⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To do this again and again, if it is blessed and I choose!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Earning stripes and inches every time I prove this small piece of divinity, marks of my might;⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
No wonder you tell me I must be smaller than I am. ⠀⠀⠀
