A Poem About Consent

yes without duress poem quote ms moem

A Poem About Consent

I want to be quite frank here.
Let’s talk about consent.
This doesn’t mean keep badgering
Until someone relents.
I’ll break it down a little more;
Let’s take it from the top.
You need to ask explicitly, and if there’s not a yes
Then stop.
There’s no room for uncertainty
So the second they say no
It doesn’t matter if you want it
The light’s not green for go.
For all sexual activity
You must be clear and sure
As without it, you’re an animal
On the wrong side of the law.
No minors can give their consent
No matter what they say
So make sure you have all the facts
Before you start to play.
It’s not the clothes a person wears
Or the way in which they act
Just assuming they are up for it
Does not make it a fact.
Flirty or suggestive behaviour
Is not an invitation.
Nothing must ever happen
Without an adult conversation.
If you are not mature enough
To talk this subject through,
Then really, it’s a no-go
And sex is not for you.
These intimate acts are a privilege.
It is rape if you take them by force.
An unwilling yes or silence
Is not consent of course.
In fact, even if you’re married
Or you’ve shared a bed before
That doesn’t automatically mean
It’s an ever open door.
Every time, you must ask outright
If they want to proceed with you.
You need a yes, without duress
And nothing less will do.
Make sure your partner is comfortable
At each step down the line.
Consent is not eternal
And can be withdrawn at any time.

Designed For Life ~ A Poem

designed for life by ms moem -a poem for inspiration and motivation

Designed For Life

Be your own inspiration!
When times seem bleak or tough,
When you’re looking for motivation
Or proof that you are enough.
You trust your individual components;
Your eyes, your fingers, your brain.
You know those parts do what they’re meant to do.
See your whole being as the same!
Know there is strength inside you.
Know with each beat of your heart
That you can do what you are meant to do;
All you have to do is start.

Tell Me – A Wedding Poem

Tell Me - A Wedding Poem Written by Ms Moem

Tell Me

Tell me all your secrets
Tell me all your dreams
Tell me where you came from
And all the things you’ve seen.

Tell me all the little things
That rattle round your head.
Tell me how you really feel;
Don’t let things go unsaid.

You can tell me when you’re happy
You can tell me when you’re sad
You can tell me when I wind you up
That I really make you mad.

Tell me that tomorrow
Will always be a brand new day.
Tell me that together
We will always be okay.

Then tell me that you love me
Tell me that you care
Tell me there’s nowhere you’d rather be.
Tell me you’ll always be there.
