I see you there
falling in love with her brokenness
wanting to be her savior
casting demons from her
so she’ll prostrate herself at your feet
like some sort of Mary Magdalene
There will be no
second coming for you
though you imagine yourself a god among men
She is far stronger and wiser
than a table full of men will ever give her credit for
both sinner and saint
she will never ask forgiveness
for the destruction men have left her with
and she needs no saving from you
A very poignant piece. Although it made me feel uncomfortable, which I associate to me being male, I fully endorse the message within the body of the work.
If God was/is to be idolized, surely it was to include both males & females alike and on the same level?
Historically, a woman’s burdens were not to be spoken off. For that, history will represent the injustice of the times. As a male, I have learned and acknowledged the historical wrongs of our society and belief systems. As a person, I look forward to lessen the burdens of old.
I am but a man whom is determined to grow and become a better man.
I saw a tweet today that said something like, “Be glad women only want equality, and not revenge.”
I think even men who can acknowledge they have male privilege, still don’t even truly understand what women deal with.
Brilliant and beautiful!
