Blood on my panties here we go again
a reminder of gender, something else to amend
Reach for the cup that will gladly receive
all that is now wasted, no need to conceive
Pain through the body will eventually subside
as will the nastiness waiting to surprise
This is the rhythm us women know to be true
until it is time to be invited through to a new crew.
Each to their own label to make
to describe this journey that we all take.
For me it's had a few ups and more downs
I look forward to transitioning to a new crown
Gone the excuse to eat chocolate, ignore a few pounds
indulge a down day or just be unsound
In its place i will honour and greet
the next stage of life, of wisdom to meet.
