Shepard

I have lived a thousand lives
none of which were mine
I have shepherd many flocks
and been left by roadside
I have watched them come
and I have watched them go
speaking as they got the lessons
but never do they know.
I have lived a thousand lives
none of which were mine
guiding those who might have grown
if they had thought to thrive
but I know only of their choices
when they chose to go
I have lived a thousand lives
but never have I known
the kindness of mine own self
the emptiness I’ve sown.

 

freedom in nothing

Everything is broken
nothing here is right
there really is no certainty
but we sleep at night
awake without eyes open
pockets empty too
I’m not sure what I’m doing
but at least one thing is true
that everything is broken,
poor and rusted through
I’ve torn my heart right open
and found a home with you.

I still got you

Never say I didn’t tell you so
everything little thing
that you wanted to know
every last mistake
you never wanted to grow
but you can’t fucking say
I never told you so.
Come to me like I’m your therapist
then you can’t recall the time
that I put in-all my wages paid
in past percents
everything I got was gone by then.
Never, ever tell me I didn’t
tell you so
I saw all your mistakes before
you hit the road
speak my mind, but speaking gets old
when no ones listening
and speaking gets you in trouble
when the truths in sync
no one ever wants a friend
who goes that deep
so now I’m just a ghost
you forget about me
but never, ever, forget just one thing
I know of all your demons and fucked up deeds.

One and two

And if we go together
will I know you stayed
for reasons I’d remember
if I lost my brain
cannot forget forever
when memories are lies
if I wake up tomorrow
it’ll all be alright
for you would know my name
if I’d forgotten mine
and I would know your face
even without my eyes
and if we go together
I will know you stayed
even if the moments
decide to go away
because even with my
broken mind
we are one in the same.

Sweet sixteen

Lolita, Lolita,
all these baby divas
just too sweet to beat’em-
bet Roman Polanski would eat’em!
All these gilded ladies
merely idol babies
even Cosmopolitan’s not that crazy-
dating older men is just so passe,
these older broads-so nasty
get’em while they young?
That’s okay?
Tyga ain’t a man!
No way.
The Weeknd is just sad.
The old way.
Kate Hudson is a drag-
so thirsty-woman robs the cradle-
it’s just another Thursday?
All the rich and young-just prey
sacrifice them up-
its so great!
Kylie Jenner’s strong?
She’s okay?
This is all alright-it’s not though.
We once protected the young,
but that times gone.
Bella Thorne is just one-
in a hundred,
another child without a youth
just exploited-
by her own accord,
but we don’t stop it
or
tell them that it’s okay
not to flaunt it-
tell them it’s okay just to want it.
The world’s gone mad
and we just watch it
no one gives a damn-
just fuck off it.

MGTOW

Here we are now
and there they go
the women now pay
for what they sowed
reaping loneliness
and dying alone.
Crying into pillows
wondering
where’d the men go
got your “empowerment”
but still you go to bed solo.
What’d you expect to happen
while you blasted all intentions?
Turned nice guys into rapist
and romance to assault
but still you want the wedding gown
yes you want it all.
Yet, the abused often wake up
and our boys they’ve had enough
what’s left for you to sift through
when the men have called your bluff?

10 dating tips for the empowered woman

1: Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t think like a man and don’t be the cool girl. Be you. Be honest to yourself and your partners. Settle for nothing less than love for the authentic you.

2: Say it. When you have doubts, concerns or you are just bothered by something-say it. Don’t hold back feelings for fear of losing a partner or to spare them. It’ll lead to your unhappiness and you deserve better.

3: Don’t think like a man. This one begs repeating. If one night stands, and emotionless flings aren’t your thing-it’s okay. It’s not really every guys thing. It just some people’sĀ  thing regardless of gender if it’s not yours that’s okay.

4: Get comfy in solitude by recognizing your options. Lonely night in? Get cozy with your favorite movie and think about your day. You looked good, and everybody saw it. Who’d you see that caught your eye? Fantasy is healthy and can be a great way to get to know your true wants.

5: Take charge. Want to cross that line with a friend? Really want to talk to the mysterious stranger at the bar? Ask them out, or buy them a drink. It’s hot, it’s alluring, and most importantly it feels amazing. Go get that rush.

6: Don’t cheat. There are a hundred excuses for why anyone cheats-you don’t need them. If you find yourself in an unhappy relationship, handle it. Have that conversation, give a reasonable time frame for change and bounce if the problem persists.

7: Resist temptation. Take a second and ask yourself why? Don’t make excuses take the second. If you need to end your relationship because your not done frolicking, do it. There’s no shame in needing time to have fun, but there is in the act of cheating.

8: Don’t rush and not just the physical. Don’t rush emotions savor the slow build and really take the time to see if this person is worth your time. You deserve the best take the extra time to see what you really want if anything out of it.

9: Give the best. When you expect the best you gotta give it in return. It’s beneath an empowered lady not to give it their all. Set the pace for respect, romance, and passions-all who fall behind, get left behind.

10: Don’t settle for an unhappy relationship, marriage, or even friendship if you’re not satisfied chances are they aren’t either. Talk it out and be okay with goodbye. You deserve to be happy.

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.
