Gentleman

Hide behind written words
blame me if you must
but we all must
answer for our own actions
I am no more than
what
you would have me to be
and I needed to be more
than that
I will admit
say nothing
and I will remove all
give me disrespect
and I can only
expect your harvest
to be dire
I am a goddess
I am from the Divine
and am divine
do no harm to me
sow no ill will
change must come
as your mind demands
but leave this port
with kind words
loving gestures
and sweet good-byes
so that one day
you may return
Silence loudly
speaks of you
turning away
rudely, arrogantly
with no dignity
and no honor
Look in the mirror
and speak to your fate
arrogantly you hope for
grace
mercy
and understanding
yet you offer none

burn no bridge
Stand up
Man
Gentle

This was written out of hurt and confusion. It was really just away to process my feelings at the moment. Writing is about purging the spirit and getting the negativity out. I had to write this even though there are words that I don't mean.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

Ankh : The Original Cross



The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.


The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.
