They all say that they want to see the feminine rise.
“It’s what’s most needed on the planet right now, women paving the way!”
They speak of women’s leadership with such heartfelt dedication
Of it’s importance
The things that women can do
Should be given room to do
Or so they say
And so, we begin rising out of our hiding places
Unchaining ourselves from the darkest depths
The places where our beauty, sexuality, freedom, healing abilities, and emotion have all been banished to
We test the waters
Is it safe for me to embrace the beauty of all that I am?
Is it safe for me to explore my sexuality?
Is it safe for me to exercise my healing abilities?
Is it safe for me to express my range of emotion
Am I really, really free?
We dip a toe into the ocean
Then our foot up to our ankle
Now both feet
Wading in up to our knees
Until we suddenly finding ourselves jumping, leaping and diving
Playing in the crashing waves
Is all of me really welcome here?
She’s out, the feminine, she’s really free!
That is, until the patriarchal fist comes crashing down, once again
Women who are free
Embodied in their wildness
They’re seen as a threat
A threat to the controlling bubble that tries to keep us small and easy to understand
The smaller the better
All the better to control, my dear
All the better to use, my dear
All the better to consume my dear
As soon as the feminine makes her way out of hiding
All guards are up
Fear is forefront
No matter how many times this happens
It can happen over and over again
Still, we rise
The feminine rises against all odds
Patriarchal fists crashing down or not
We will continuing rising
And what’s yet,
You don’t even know what’s still in store with us
The best is definitely yet to come.
