Womenstruation

What if women invented religion?
Would menstruation still be a source of shame
Or of pride?

Would it still signify the loss of an unconceived child,
A vile symptom of uncleanliness,
A sin…?

Or would it be seen as holy:
A sign of a woman’s power over death
To bear life…?

Would women still be shunned from the temple,
Forbidden to touch or interact with others
And taught to be ashamed?

Or would we be revered,
Seen as closer to the Goddess,
Celebrated & sought out?

Let’s reinvent religion,
Knowing now why our bodies do what they do,
So that none will be shunned for their natural functions.
