the day the women rose
the day the woman rose
she walked with grace
and calm
peace spread across her face
and she said
let's sit down 

and eat

what is it in stillness that we fear?
 the sound of our own heart beating?
 the wave of emotions that is like an avalanche every second of every day? 
the rhythmic pattern of thoughts that bang against our skulls day in and day out? 
what keeps us from silence...
what keeps us from peace?

i like to be cold,
slightly drunk
and curl up next to
someone i love
nothing is the way i want it to be
try to find the zen in that
yet everything is
or it never was
or it was never meant to be

goddess warriors vs, goatfuckers
the ring reeks with the stench 
of dirty old men
consumed by power, domination, control
religion is dealt the hand of referee
but there is no neutrality here
that, at least, is transparent
my weapon is my truth
and i will wield it wisely yet sharply
and with precision, integrity and fearlessness
my actions have cast light on the stage
and now it's time to ACT

i've been staring 
at the hair on my arm
for about an hour now
and what i have discovered
is that there is extreme beauty
in our diversity
if only we could see it
outside of our arm hair
that may sound crazy
but it really isn't if you stare long enough
