Dear Patriarchy

Dear patriarchy,

What’s your deal really?

Because when I woke

I wondered

Hmmm

Why exert so much power

Over my body

My soul

And my vagina

My feisty, hot head of rebellion!

 

Dear Patriarchy

is it possible

That you are a tad bit fearful,

of me

Because I do see through you.

 

So you feed me lies

But in my mind, I always questioned

And you told me I was less

But in my gut I always doubted

So you had me in chains

But my body constantly rejected

 

So you told me more lies

More narratives,

More religion

More society

 

And dear Patriarchy, your deception I kind of accepted

At least for some time whilst

It lasted.

But…. my soul always searched

 

And finally, I woke

And I questioned all that you stand for

And the many ways you use

“supposed to be” as a means

To keep me chained,

not to wake

I looked at your narrative of religions

And your masculine God!

I questioned your consumerism

And corporate ladder bullshit

I questioned your inequality of emotion

In a relation

 

Dear patriarchy,

News flash, I AM emotion

you can’t shut me down

But I give you this much,

for a long time, I actually believed you

 

Dear patriarchy

I am not done yet

In fact, I am just getting started

 

Dear patriarchy

If I, a female makes you wonder

If you should feed me more lies

If I, a woman makes you shudder

At the thought of my rise

If I, a lady gives you a tremor

With fear of my power

 

Then surely patriarchy

You should not be surprised

That I transcend

Beyond the limits of your deception

 

Why?

Because I finally believe

That you are indeed threatened

By my feminine wisdom

You are exposed

To my unending love for mother nature

You are unprotected

From my fluidness to make a form

From any form

That is why you use every narrative possible

To make me question my reality

 

But Dear patriarchy

This is my fuck you to you

Because I am awake and I am not

ever going back to Sleep!.

You are welcome.
