Understand this

I need, I need, I need
to get across this theme
of everything we breed
encases something sinister.
That nothing is as pure
as my truth and word
all these lived experiences
shed light on these entanglements
the dark web of my true regret-
the message clear
you’re malcontent.
I need, I need, I need
to make you truly see
that though our plates may seem
equal in entirety-
that we are all the same-
you can’t make that claim
you just play their game.
I am the one in need-
give me your understanding
that we are not equals
for I’m the realest victim of you all.

 

Butterflies

We all want to be
beautiful and sad
tragic little butterflies
driven quite mad.

Flying cross the boulevard
floating like a dream
desperate imitations
of what we cannot be.

Everybody wants to be a superstar
show the world how special
that they really are
everybody wants to be
beautiful and sad
depression and anxiety
the best accessory ever had.

We all want to be
beautiful and sad
tragic little butterflies
driven quite mad.

Everybody wants to be
Lana Del or Halsey
all the pretty stories but know
nothing of true suffering.

Everybody wants to be someone else
we all pretend we’re butterflies
while killing ourselves.

story of me

Tell of all my longings
my love and my undoing.
Tell of all my failures
my rise within this ruin
never speak of roses
or of happy endings
seek to end this cycle of
ever after pretending.
Tell of all my glory and
how I lost my head-the story
never over
just retellings in my stead.
Tell of all my memories with your
voice and then
tell of all my longings-the delusions
in my head
tell me that I’m crazy
while I forget again-
tell of all my longings and all that is
my bed but never forget the ending
happier now than then.

Save the cheerleader

Save the women!
Save the world!
We must protect our little girls
they are weak and prone to failure
due to tears and chauvinist agenda.
We must pass more legalisation
to keep them from degradation.
They are weak and prone to failure
due to physical differences
and biological imperatives,
but we fucked up
with all these fables
we waged war by making ourselves
incapable-women need more legalisation
to ensure our reparations
this is not about equality
women fight for supremacy
but like a woman we play the sheep
Oh please big strong man come save me!
Save the women
destroy the world
please stop stealing empowered girls
let them grow up big and strong
can we undo
what feminist got wrong?

He’s already dead, he’s already dead…

Walk out
turn around
cry
those goddamn tears
right now.
Never let a word
in edge wise
just keep repeating
the verse-those big lies.
Rip the paper
turn the flavor
change your name
or lose the favor.
Everybody taste the same
when you bleed
the thinking brain
change the world
by inbreeding
we lost soul
and
critical meaning.

Victimhood

I don’t need your victimhood
I don’t need your help
I have waged my own way
while you played with yourself.
Parade about equality
when all you want is
everything;
the power, the man, the wedding ring-
life that’s fair to femininity-
while you destroy
the enemy?
I don’t need your victims tale
I don’t need your progress
I have waged a war in kind
to end the world you promised
protest all you want
but never do define
you are exactly
the very stereotypes
you mime.
Broken little girls
all you do is whine-
imagine all the trauma,
nightmares are your bribe,
scream until you’re crying
then say it’s all their fault
but never actually fight for change
just hold another woman’s march.

Sweet cherry pie

Cherry pies
til we die
feed the hunger
make it shine
we are corpses
so divine
sucking down their
storylines
we sell souls
for marigolds
and tout that supper
till we’re gold
cherry pies
and
life on ice
we kill ourselves
just to survive.

The orgasm gap

Don’t take my orgasm
just because you can’t have one
shade my fun
because your feeling like the victim
your unloved but don’t
ruin it for the rest of us.
You can’t feel the hum-
your just bitter
like the wine you sip
cheap and clawing
just alcohol
no grape notes-not a hint.
Playing the victim
doesn’t get you laid,
does it?
Hands off my orgasms
you don’t speak for me
keep your hands off my pleasure
and my agency
no one asked you to rhetoric
sex-don’t make me a victim
of your ignorant text.
Don’t you dare tell me
my orgasm is oppression
your just a victim of
your own twisted perspective.
Can’t get to climax
because you’re too uptight
can’t feel real pleasure
when no dick is right.
Well, that’s tough but
that’s not my fault.
I am a woman
who has plenty of orgasms
it’s not oppression
just a product of passion.
Hands off my orgasms
you don’t speak for me-
sex is not the enemy
but feminists might be.

The empowered woman’s manifesto

The empowered woman never falters in understanding that nothing is as simple as black and white. Yes, the empowered woman walks tall knowing everything exist in grey, but the best part? Knowing this means she’d have reported Mr. Grey to the authorities and moved on with her bad self.

The world won’t prepare you for this walk. The world despises strong women, but not for the reasons you think. It’s because unlike you, most are imposters, most visible strong and empowered women-aren’t. It’s hard to imagine, right? Katy Perry and Alicia Keys not being goals-well not really. Strip the celebrity down and what do you have? Women controlled by their image, career, and life style.

A true empowered woman stripped of privilege, resources, and image is still an empowered woman.

She is the woman who communicates honestly, openly and without apology.

She is the woman who is critical first of her behaviors, actions, and beliefs because she knows the full extent of good and evil she is capable of.

She is then critical of all information she’s fed and the behaviors/words of others, nothing goes unchallenged.

She is the woman of choice. Always understanding her responsibility in the matter whether; career and family planning, or simply where she’ll play tonight she knows she’s going prepared.

She speaks out when wronged no matter how fearful for she knows she must protect herself.

She is never the victim for even when attack she knows she’ll get the last laugh.

She knows her rights, who to call, and how the system is built to protect her as well as what to do if it fails her.

She is prepared for great joy and great pain knowing life is filled with degrees of various emotions and experiences.

She sets boundaries and keeps them.

She doesn’t fight, no, the empowered woman discusses, debates, and critically examines, but knows fights are wasted energy.

She knows loneliness and knows how to end it. She isn’t afraid of a Friday night in, but also has back up plans for company.

She doesn’t cheat. No, the truly empowered woman doesn’t cheat because like fighting it’s a waste of time and ultimately an act you should be ashamed of.

The empowered woman makes her way despite a world informing her she’s weak, limited, and oppressed. Yes, despite feminism the empowered woman makes the most out of life educating the world with action. Letting no individual who comes in contact with her forget that empowered women are alive and well.
