One of the best visual representations of the double standards subjected to all women on a daily basis. Reconsider the next time you toss about the words in column 3.

Women are emotional in order to feel the divine energy at the highest levels and be supreme healers and lovers and mothers. Not to drive men insane. Her deep spiritual connection to feelings is to inspire a man to his spiritual heights as well. She is not a nag, she is an oracle.

Im not sure…I feel like woman historically have suffered the most throughout history.man has taken the rug from under them. Even though men planted the seeds of life, woman have nurtured them raised them, taught them.
While men went off to fight pointless wars women maintained the integrity of their villages and kingdoms. Woman’s bodies go through far more turmoil than a mans..yet are still expected to handle the same of not more than a man.
Of the strongest and most fierce of men…they have brought to there knees by a woman.
Even homosexual men can not display the same essence a woman can. She emits qualities that cannot be duplicated.
Kings, warriors, drug lords, all weakened by the presence of a woman, whether it be their mother or the mother of their children.Even in the animal kingdom the female has so much command.
They have suffered horrifying abuse from the hands of man and STILL raised warriors and queens.
It just made me think…any woman who has been in power ruled her domain with such fierceness. .whether for GOOD or EVIL.
They say the meek shall inherit the earth well what about the woman?
I feel like she has a greater gift when she dies..to discover that her creator looks like her.
Why couldn’t that be possible? Wouldnt that be amazing? The ultimate caregiver…protector and teacher.
A woman.
Or there may not be a gender at all. Who knows?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a black woman
can write of
loneliness.
or
love
or softness.
or the moon.
you may try valiantly
to cripple her
but she will still grow flowers in her flesh

She’s never where she is. She’s only inside her head.

White Oleander by Janet Fitch  (via lovejailyric)

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.
