When did I?
forget my ancestral sovereignty
so busy with assimilation
attempting to be
like everyone else
when did I?
choose to sell my soul
for your favor and in return
when did I?
overlook my strength and became scared
pandering to all
who would watch me
naked with hungry eyes?
how did I?
forget your opinion is null
because I now remember; I am my home
built on a foundation
stronger than you will ever know
Stop, just stop
lying, misogyny, disrespect, gaslight & redirect
intentional brainwash in persistent pattern
don’t hate me because I see you
see me because I know
what you have stolen
pay attention, I cannot be unseen
I am every woman, girl, female, human
know this, because I say with action
I am a natural danger, a seismic sea wave

I realize the words “fair” and “life” in the same sentence is a paradox, but then like most things, it’s…
After a somewhat off kind of day, I was at home sitting by the fireplace, drinking hot cocoa on a bearskin rug (actually drinking a glass of wine, I also lied, no bearskin rug, either!!). A most horrifying thought came to mind… “myself as a bad wig-wearing mama.”
