WARNING ADULT CONTENT: This may offend you, this may make you uncomfortable, this just might make you angry.
Anger is an integrity-protecting response to the invasion of your personal boundaries. It is “no” to a wrong, a violation. It draws lines and throws up barricades. ~Gabrielle Roth in Maps to Ecstasy

Why aren’t you angry?
The sacred feminine was scared into hiding hundreds of years ago during the reign of terror that killed millions of women for over 500 years (though that terror ended the war on women continued). It is no wonder that mothers perpetuate oppression because it is in their very DNA for survival – you must not act out, you must not be different, you must go with the flow to survive.
I don’t want to survive, I want to kick the doors down, scream and yell, and say this is my time to shine!
You know people think there is something wrong with women that are angry? They should be angry, they are sick and tired of being oppressed, told what they can or can’t do, or when they have strong feelings about something they are told they must be on the rag.
I have said in the past, I will not be silent any more. If you think I’m crazy because I write angry poetry, about being angry because of all the injustices in the world, maybe it’s time you look in the mirror, and ask…
Why aren’t you angry?
Are you stuffing everything so deep inside because you truly feel there isn’t anything you can do about it? Is it the only way you can get by in the day? Is it the only way you can sleep at night because if you let yourself think about what is going on in the world, what is happening to women everywhere, what they are doing to our planet, the needless killing and maiming, that you might come unglued at the seams?
I say it is time to fly apart, it is time to wake up and light a fire under your ass!
No more sitting in a bubble thinking it is okay and the world isn’t so bad.
It is our sex
that has been repressed
ripped from our bodies
bloodied and banished
no more feeling tarnished
reclaiming our sex
Women have power within, creating life, creating love, creating art, and it is past time that we fully embrace our Sacred Sexual Fire of Creation.
