Quan Yin…Goddess of Compassion…vowed to keep her eyes closed until violence is gone and love prevails on earth…In other words, She will never open her eyes.

women are feral
they never belong to anyone
but themselves
they are part of the
part of
their roots go deep
men fear them
and they should
for the crimes
they commit
against them
I just hope they remember

A lot of us REALLY like snakes…especially when we are in our Medusa mood. Definitely then. Poem

Portrait Photo of Woman With Face Art

Medusa was quite fond of snakes
She took them everywhere
She wore them ’round Her ankles
She wore the in Her hair
She carried them throughout the day
And slept with them at night
To see Her walking down the street
Was truly quite a sight
Her face was always veiled
One looked turned men to stone
But the loving haunting Goddess
Was never all alone
The moving hissing serpents
Were all that She adored
In truth
When faced with humans
She because extremely bored
The gods made up some stories
About this Goddess who
Gave birth to every one of them
A thing they could not do
Then enter waring Perseus
Who took Her for his foe
He went to cut off Her sweet head
As most of you do know
But Medusa knew the future
The present
As well
and Perseus wasn’t real
As far as She could tell
So She went about Her business
Being wise and strong
Caressing Her beloved snakes
All day
And all night long

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

Oh darling
come closer
don’t be afraid
you must know that
not all women are
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
scare you
just put one foot
in front of the other
and come

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
men like to pretend that she was a
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
but she simply wanted to live in peace
with her garden and her asps
and that made her
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
