   Men who are afraid to feel keep women around to do their feeling for them while dismissing us for the same supposedly ‘inferior’ capacity to feel deeply. But in this way also, men deny themselves their own essential humanity, becoming trapped in dependency and fear.




















Femininity is depicted as weakness, the sapping of strength, yet masculinity
is so fragile that apparently
even the slightest brush with
the feminine destroys it.

To my absent mother.
To the person who acts like nothing is ever wrong or its everyone else’s fault and is delusions and thinks her children all love her. Being young I thought it was fun to go to your house and getting away from my dad’s girlfriend and being able to go get junk food from Fareway’s across the street and you giving us what we wanted and letting us do what we wanted. But now that I’m older I realized that you only did it to get us out of the house so you could put the drugs first and so we wouldn’t bother you. What got me the most is how we had to leave notes to tell you where we were because we left while you were passed out and going through the drug withdraws. You never really cared about us. You always pawned our stuff for the drugs and got mad when we asked about saying we never played with them and promised us you would get them back, but we never saw any of it again. But I’m glad you left my life, I didn’t have a negative impact in my life while I was turning into an adult. I found who I was without you and I am truly glad. So, thanks for putting the drugs first so I didn’t have you in my life to ruin what good I had.

I am my lover. I am the one                                                                                      that tends my garden.
                                                 I am the one I will always
                                                 say goodnight to last.

                                                                         
                                                                                



 

the gods are not dead. when men speak to me like i can’t read, i feel athena awaken somewhere in my bone structure. her mouth spits words i had forgotten i memorized, facts from the deep pockets of libraries. she revels in the way they stutter at the quickness of my tongue, whispers, here’s what it feels to be above the cities. i know demeter for the way i feel in dirt, i catch sunlight in my palms and beg people to be disgusted at girl unhaunted by pretty, my hair a mess and my legs hairy and my body thick. i’ve kissed aphrodite, i’ve met her not in l.ust only but in the girl who listens like she is tied to your soul. she comes out and we go dancing, unashamed of our sexuality. i have even been her, once or twice, on rare moons where the stars aligned. i know the rage of artemis. i hunt those who hurt my sisters, i slay demons, i run in night with red lips. and i am persephone, always, goddess of the spring, goddess of the pomegranate, of wanting, of riding her own horse to hades, of being two queens. when men take power from me, i hear her whispering. take it back, she says, tongue sweet, ambrosia in the blood stream, take back your city.

the gods are not dead. they live in women. they live in me.

 

What is Fulfillment? Fulfillment is being Blissfully Content...with Pleasure and Peace… with Calmness and Courage…with Joy and Love.
Now girls are often raised to see love only as giving. Women are praised for their love when that love is an act of giving. But to love is to give AND to take. Please love by giving, and by taking. Give and be given. If you are only giving and not taking, you’ll know. You’ll know from that small and true voice inside you that we females are so often socialized to silence. Don’t silence that voice. Dare to take. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


i bleed

Nayyirah Waheed


So many men mistake their own disrespect
for women as a woman's lack of self-respect.
