I was 17 when I wrote that,” she reminds me. “That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realise no one takes someone from you if they don’t want to leave.

     “My mom died from diabetes and my dad was murdered. I’m in college, and I’m about to launch my own clothing line, as well as a non-profit organization.”     “How were you able to succeed despite losing your parents? Did you have a grandmother or someone who helped you?”     “Actually, I’m the one helping my grandmother. I was the type of kid who had strong ambitions—challenges drove me. I was presented with so many obstacles that I was expected to fail at everything: I wasn’t supposed to graduate from high school, I wasn’t supposed to go to college. But I never failed. No one in my family ever went to college—I’m breaking that chain.”

Fuck your virginity
My inner voice
Screamed at my aunty
Who warned my innocent 14 year old self
That if I was to be a ‘whore’
No Albanian man
Would want to marry me
Fuck your virginity
And your degrading society
There is no ‘dick’
In dictate
So why should I
Aim to please
A nameless man
Who may or may not be
The one
Only to discover
After a cheep band
Cuts the blood
On my wedding finger
No, fuck your virginity
I don’t want your men
Even if you gave me all of them
Men who deem women
As inferior
Only regarding them as
Interior, for their bedrooms
And their kitchens
Fuck your virginity
I won’t let my worth
Be determined
By the gender given to me at birth
I will not be suppressed
By the fear of
The ‘virgin test’
‘You will put shame on our family’
‘Your husband will bring you back to your mother’
‘You’ll kill your father’
Fuck your virginity
I laughed inside as
Her words echoed the room
This is what they teach young girls?
That if they lose their ‘pearls’
They’re doomed
Taught to aspire
Only to a man’s desire
We’re the supplier
And they’re the buyer
She did not tell me
To respect my body
She did not tell me
To respect my soul
Shame on our culture
And these women
For devaluing our sex
As mere ‘housewives’
To the vulture
So fuck your virginity
No, not figuratively
p.k. – virginity
