I dream in letters now…making temples of words and sanctuaries of stories – smiling being my cloak of survival, speaking in tongues my frantic offering of a lullaby of lament.
So what is my “go to” in times of trouble…anger, fear, with drawl, fight, flight, disappearance, hiding?
I am hated in about 30 countries, loved in many more…my strength seen as a misplaced eraser of balance, neurotoxins of the Goddess genes.
How many derogatory names do we have for women?
Bitch, Ho, Cunt, Slut, Whore!
How many do you use? How many do I…casually…self-hatred running deep?
The truth is women are the only ones able to create life inside their bodies. Is it scary to men to realize that we could freeze their sperm and then carry out a mass genocide. Hopefully, eradicating war, dominance, acts of abuse in the wake.
It’s o.k. to be stupid, sexy, coy…snapshots of the Palin years. But Do Not wear a pant suit and compete in the male arena head to head…do not think of becoming the most powerful dictator in the world….while they are dominating the real mother, slicing her up and raping her. Let’s just hope, her roots go deep into the unconscious occipital playground of the feminine. It is true that women have more neuro pathways in the corpus callosum than men, connecting the right and left hemispheres of the brain…making us more whole brained, pulling out the truth from our dreamtime, voting for the capacity to thrive.
And how is it that others think I am continually forgiving.
That acts of slight are forgotten. That deeds done in the name of selfishness are dismissed, that there is no “deal breaker” in my world…constant story of the powerless self-defacing, feminine model of “good girl”.
Good is a mother bear tearing in to a male twice her size.
Good is pulling the trigger on an approaching abuser.
Good is stepping in front of a car headed towards a young child.
Bare feet on cobble stone…there is a reason we are here!
All of us…at the changing of the guard…at the changing of the millennium. We are here for a reason.
Let us fear not…we were made for this time!
