Nothing

  It hurts to be looked at like I'm nothing. As if I'm just an object That you can pick up and place In your shopping cart. It hurts To know the things going through Your mind are not safe. When you smirk And scoff, mock and jeer, Do you not understand The fear that grips ...

let me put your mind at ease…

if you cannot appreciate my magic, then leave. if you expect me to grovel for your love, your respect, your body, your sex, your smile, then i am not the woman for you. my light shines bright, blinds those who are unworthy of my gold daily, who are you to think you deserve more than your ...

my womb is not my own;

Like Eve, I fell, And like Lilith, I am punished. My womb is not my own; Pale hands caress and judge As I spread my thighs with my  own authorization; my womb is not my own; Pain wrecks havoc inside of me, I curl Up like the fetus inside me; my womb is not my ...

I am

in all honesty, i am a compassionate person; a woman, female born, society defined, I am all and I am nothing; I crave the rays of sunlight, i dance under the crescent petals of night, i shiver when the sky weeps, i cheer when the droplets twirl in the white sky; I am human, I ...

A housewife’s plea

Don't you know what this awful, heartrending, heavy feeling is called?Empty, I am empty. A black hole seems almost limited to the expanse of my misery. Ambiguity and mystique seems almost the same to me; I, who am discarded in the drift of time, barely holding on, I rock and pray to a God who ...

Feminine rage

Feminine rage, hear me roar To all my sistahs of every decadent shade, Mark my words as we create history; Smooth skinned females with luscious hair, Freckled ladies with sunny smiles, Snow queens and drag queens, dykes and machas, take note as we break down barriers and watch the squeamish squirm. We are queens of ...

Keep your Head up

Born from fire And breast feed solely On feminine strife- Sometimes the milk of discrimination Trickled, while other days It flowed like a babbling brook. Instead of pretty pink bows And dolled up like a lifeless Thoughtless object- She was given a choice, A variety of colors and styles. But she was mocked in school ...
