A poem inspired by some of my favorite lyrics:

"And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman
And our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women?
Why we rape our women?"




Destroy Everything Now

A lover, a mother, a teacher, a bearer of

Bad news, and lessons filled with love

How we scream so loudly at her

How we violate and shame her

The Bible wanted to stone her

The Gods used and abused her

Her, she, we, me -- all the same

The creator shouldn't be viewed with disdain

But human beings always try to deny

What is natural; like my body

On your body, intertwined with you

To create a life, it only takes two
One half of the equation is she, her, me

The other half is him, he, you our family

But nudity is seen as something shameful

Breasts are viewed as disgraceful

We were born wearing nothing, such innocent babies

Were breasts not how we were nurtured for centuries?

Such symbols of creation, once so innocent

Now we twist them and view them as sins

And that is how a woman can be viewed

So negatively; all things that are beautiful must be ruined

The earth gives us life, and we rip it out with both hands

The roots, the core destroy it all before it gets a chance

To live--

Beat your women now

Destroy everything now
