Let Me Define Myself

I am unique.

Biology helped the doctors define who I was at birth:

My genitalia like the vulva and vagina tells the doctor I am a girl.

Now, as a grown-up woman, it is still by biology;

‘cos at this mature stage, I possess an added feature:

Which is my breast.

By these biological constructions, the society seeks to define my roles:

By marriage and motherhood.

Outside of these roles as a woman, I am nothing.

My purpose and self-dependence do not count.

Am I trying to say that I do not want to be married someday

Or, that I do not desire a child of own someday?

No!

But, I should not be defined by these rhetorics.

Do not judge me!

Do not rush me!

Let me define my construction and not the society!
