thoughts of academy,, if i’ll make it
sleepless nights vaccinated with vile
feeling sober w/ a hint of a mental mind fuck,
such a waste that no one ever reads ,,
focus on the words when you’re on the tube
things are clear to to see ,,
i hope you find your clarity

An experience I had this past weekend. It was the first time I’ve ever seen tampons in a men’s restroom and they were free! That’s awesome!

NOTE: Some colleges are providing free tampons in the restrooms. For anyone who is upset because “they aren’t free in the women’s room,” I want to point out that this was at one of those colleges. I can assure you they provided free tampons and pads in the women’s restroom too. 

Dear you-know-who-you-are,

today is one of those days i think of you. it’s hard to tell you why but i just do. today i forget about all the bad we’ve been through and reminisce about all the good. today i miss you. i miss how you made me laugh and feel some type of way. did you know you were the only one who loved me for me? you cared for me in the purest way. i never needed make-up, hair extensions or fancy clothes. there was no point in all of that. all you had eyes for was my soul. today i think of that because it was beautiful. but sometimes beauty requires an ugly price to pay. yet today i close my eyes to the ugly. only today.

Pandora opened the box
and let evil rampant
Eve ate an apple
and fell all of men
Persephone hungered for power
Helen made war for her love
Cleopatra reigned immortal

They wept for Icarus
But shed not a tear for Medea
So she burned them to the ground, and god,
How she burned

History reviles us
And why shouldn’t it
It was never ours

We, the scapegoats blamed for the cruelties of unfit
Gods and pathetic men

We inherited the ocean and all her rage
We will rise from the ashes of the fires you set
We will crumble your kingdoms and build our own
We will rule with iron fists and open hands,
Wearing pearls and battle scars

We, the girls who sleep with knives under our pillows
We, with diamonds on our knuckles and blood in our mouths
We molded the past
We are the future

so i ripped him apart and kissed him goodnight

All these books and movies and games
Telling us women are strong
As if we must be reminded
Told what we are

As if we did not carry the universe
On soft shoulders
Raise stars in our bellies

As if we did not fight
Tooth and claw
Spit blood at your feet
And swing again

Women are born strong
It is this world who tells them they are weak
Raise your girls to be warriors

Raise them to do whatever it is they wish to do
Teach them to fight for what they love
Teach them to give that love
Teach them
