I'll sharing some of my poems in this thread!
Note: We're all humans, shaped in a certain way by our (patriarchal) society, which normalises a lot of things and conditions us to believe that it is not problematic. I believe not everyone is inherently good or bad, they do certain things because they believe that is how it is supposed to be. This is a reflective work which intends to the duality and reality of life.
You sweet, you beautiful
You the goddess of love & war, wisdom, fertility and whatnot...
You teach them love, they hate you
You teach them respect, they disrespect you
You cheer them , honour them
They hurt you, kill you
You're sweet, divine, gentle and kind
You give them, they snatch it away from you
These men, beware of 'em
Their fragile egos burst like balloon, if you say a word aloud
But you have to be gentle, kind, sexy & divine...
You birth their offsprings, they say you don't know anything
They come asking for sex and call you prostitute
These men, beware
They expect you to be good and kind
You raise your voice and they cry,
'You sl**, how dare you?'
But you be kind, gentle, divine
Show them respect but don't expect
You are the goddess of love, war
Teach them how to love
Teach them to respect everyone
You are the mother
You raise them with kindness, honesty and gentility,
They will learn
They have to
Or you begin a war against them
Teach them through your ferocity and anger
Burn them all, if need be
Don't be kind, gentle or divine
You are not a goddess
You are a human
You are a woman
Of flesh and blood
You have to stand for yourself
They will not let you
But you will,
Because you are a woman
You have feelings
Not an object of their will
You are a human
Of flesh and blood, just like them
And you know how to protect yourself.
My Enneagram scores tell me :
I'm a perfectionist, a giver, an achiever and a challenger,
An enthusiast and a seeker of knowledge...
All these aspects of my life,
I smile, kindly acknowledging the parts of me, that I know!
Tell me something I don't know', I tell my love:
"You are the cutest and bold and adorable, and crack dark jokes,
love trees and tiny flowers and art ,
work for good causes,
read a lot, and write even
are kind and patient and witty
your whole vibe is just so vibrant ...
And when you smile when you're super happy melts my heart"
'My darling', I say, 'you say this because you love me and
Love has tinged your vision of me!'
She chuckles softly, 'If this be untrue, let it be!
There has to be a parallel universe where all of this is true!'
'A parallel universe it has to be, my love,'
I say caressing her hair,
'Where our love is not a sin,
Where people live in harmony with each other and mother nature is still blessing us!
Where there is love in the air, not pollution,
Where young ones aren't abused, bathed in acids
Where we can be our true selves and be valued for it
Where they are cherished and cared for,
Where you, my love, are mine and only mine!'
'I am yours love, I'm still here, loving you, just as much!' she ghostly self whispers.
