A work of art…

grayscale photo of closed-eyes woman

her beauty
is undeniable
her strength
and bearing
obvious
a powerful
Goddess
a woman
who did not
surrender
but fought
the life
she was given
and won

Goddess…

woman in black and green dress

Oh darling
come closer
don’t be afraid
you must know that
not all women are
tame
in fact
very few of us
are truly broken
rather we lie in wait
for the moment
when we will rise as one
and slit your throats
for what you have done
but fear not
that moment
has not yet arrived
so be brave
don’t let my little
knife
scare you
just put one foot
in front of the other
and come
closer

Medusa…

Greeks, Medusa, Monsters, Mythology

I was never sure about the whole snake thing
a lot of “girls” like snakes
Medusa was not an exception
she thought reptiles rocked
so she kept them around
and they liked her
so they stayed
it was a symbiotic
relationship
men like to pretend that she was a
GORGON
a monster
but all she really wanted
was for men
to leave her the hell alone
it was because of that
that men despised her
after all t
heir egos
couldn’t take being shunned
so they made up stories about her
labeled her
hunted for her
but they never found her
the pictures you see
of a guy hold up her beautiful lead
is just one more lie men tell
to make themselves feel better
the stories about her
and what she could do
are lies as well
Medusa was part of a coven
sure
but she simply wanted to live in peace
with her garden and her asps
and that made her
DANGEROUS
to the establish
to the patriarchal
status quo
when she was better at hiding
than they were at finding her
the men did what they
they always do
they LIED
