Periods seem to get worse as I get older and there have been some rough migraine and intense cramping experiences in recent years. As with everything in life though, we can create from our experiences and the process seems to make it easier to see the lighter side!
There’s nothing that can seem to calm ya
When you’re in menstrual melodrama
The fevered brow, the painful cramps
The ants that you have in your pants
Your pimples bloom and your boobs swell
It’s nothing short of hormone hell!
The tears are close, your fuse is short
You eat the stuff you didn’t ought
Your sleep is rough, you get migraines
No man could understand the pain
If you escape this, you’re in luck
Hot water bottles – well, thank fuck!
and yet I’m grateful none the less
for monthly signs of womanliness
It goes away, it doesn’t harm ya
An ode to menstrual melodrama!
