…their power over, their rules, and their violence.
Resistance only reinforces.
By speaking about the strength and inner wisdom of the feminine,
I flip the conversation and land in my integrity.
This perspective forges another way
to be in our skin, homes, communities and world.
We have crossed the millennium.
We can now create new archetypes
and a world that is deserving of our spirits.
Commentary on “My Story”
Sexual abuse is violent assault. However, “an eye for an eye” is no longer our social norm (although some political-bobbing-heads prefer that retribution). In our society, justice is the responsibility of the judicial system; but some of us never get our day in court. Too much time has passed or the perpetrator is dead. So we live with our being violently assaulted. If we hold onto our anger, fear and sadness, then the assault consumes even more of our lives and takes us down the road of dust. So I suggest that we write a poem, let go of the past and use our energy to create the world that is deserving of our spirits.
