I am an egg
I am an egg wrapped in a thin shell. No, not trapped, safe in my thin shell. It’s time. Oh no, my shell cracked.
I don’t want to leave the safety of my shell.
I heard people talking. They hate people like me. They gaslight us into thinking we don’t matter. At the same time, laws legalize harassment and murders of people like me. I even heard they designed their healthcare to harm people like me. And it does!
No, I don’t want to enter that cruel world where lies have power over truth. No, I want to stay in my shell. I want to matter. I don’t want to see double standards or hear hypocrisy or fight for gender equality when I am not seen as a woman.
I am an egg, and I want to remain in my shell.
