Pecado
Pecado
Pecado

Reir con ganas
Buscar el placer propio
No querer marido
No parirle hijos al estado
No creer en la iglesia y su credo

Tener vagina
Gritar por un orgasm
Ser libre
Aceptar el cuerpo imperfect

Pero sobre todo,
No sentir culpa
De ser,
Mujer.

It’s a sin
It’s a sin
It’s a sin

To hearty laugh
To seek your own pleasure
To not want a husband
To no give birth for the State
To not believe in the Church and its creed

To have a vagina
To scream because of an orgasm
To be free
To accept the body as it is

But above all,
To not feel guilt
For being,
A woman

-From memo writing,
Austin, TX.
