In the echos of misogyny
In the way we dismiss a boys pain
we are born androgynous
and yet boys are taught to treat their emotions with disdain.
Like toy soldiers we play out wars
in our heads
behind locked doors,
the bad guys need to be defeated or dead!
Or put in prison
life is being on right side the right team
every boy a schism
of a warriors dream
we must redefine our spiritual landscape
Our chosen path
love that sometimes quick to anger we are easy to frustrate
for rage is not the aftermath
of success is not born of hate.
It is not too late
To sow the seeds of change
Rearrange our virtues
Redress our pains
Paint in colour not just in black and white
change the way we see women and the world
Forget about bravado save it for the generations before
Being a hero is not about violence
It is so much more
complicated and women have shown the way
to redefine gender roles is more than ok.
