Favorite Quote:
“The capital-T truth is about life BEFORE death. It is about the real value of a real education, which has almost nothing to do with knowledge, and everything to do with simple awareness; awareness of what is so real and essential, so hidden in plain sight all around us, all the time, that we have to keep reminding ourselves over and over: this is water. This is water.”


What do you think?
Because I am not like you…I am not capable…I am not able?
Do you think I belong in the company of your kind?
Do think I am not able to survive without a man by my side?
A man to hold the woman, to fondle her with love, and grant her every wish
Or a man to hold the Woman back, to keep her from her dreams, to order her around
The Woman does not belong in the kitchen.
Without the Woman, how would a man survive?
Are we not equal and just, is the Woman not capable of bossing around a man?
Do we seem like dolls?
Figures in a window that have no feelings, no emotions, but a body worth having
Some say that times have changed, but if they have why is the woman still given less opportunity, less respect, and less dignity?
Do we not work hard? Do we not clean up after a man’s mistakes?
Do we not nurture their young and feed their kin?
Well, now we stick up for the Woman.
The Woman has two ways, is what I believe.
The Woman may use her body to toy along a man,
Have him chase her tail until he tires and falls to the ground,
Only for the Woman to step over.
Or the Woman may use her wit and determination
To ignore a man’s taunts and expectations
And to see a man again, only that time as someone lower than she.
Both have their flaws
The Woman can only lead on a man for so long until a man moves on and leaves her stranded.
The Woman can only get so high up with determination before she meets a man on the ladder to knock her down.
So what does the Woman do? She continues despite all odds to rise.
The Woman was not made for the man, the Woman was made to perfect the man.
Because I am not like you…I am not capable…I am not able?
Do you think I belong in the company of your kind?
Do think I am not able to survive without a man by my side?
What do you think?
