Womanly wisdom

Womanly wisdom

There is a thin creature within me. Within us. It is waiting to be let out. You can then see the many ribs protruding through the skin, looking like a ribbed surface of disease and starvation. It is a weak creature and it is also very scared. Very scared. It is naked and wears only the tightly stretched skin, stretching over the many bones, trying to cover up the hunger and the loss. It is scared of touch. It knows it won’t find love. It will only get unwanted touch. Pinches. Violation. Strokes. And if it is let out, it won’t know where to hide. It will look around for safety but it will have nowhere to go. Because we have taken away its home. Its refuge. We are responsible. We have killed. Mutilated. Destroyed. Raped. Violated. We do not deserve to live. Because the creature within us is starved. For emotion. For food. For everything possibly humane.

    Very good post. But one complaint. Towards the end, I think you’re needlessly bitter:ā€” “We have killed. Mutilated. Destroyed. Raped. Violated.”
