Strength has found her,
Where sorrow betrayed,
The end of conformity,
In the land of the brave.
I stand on my own,
In a room full of men,
Distinguished and proud,
On the wings of my kin.
I know I am ready,
That it’s time to stand up,
Stop trying for something,
Which I never quite got.
So I’ll do this for me,
For I know that I’m ready,
Screw slow and steady.
We all come from the same beginning,
From something begot from the passions of plenty.
From warmth and from nature,
From that meeting of powers,
So standing here with you makes me not want to cower.
There is nothing between us that defines our cells.
DNA is but a part of the atoms of self.
So let be what is,
For I’m willing to change,
To dive into the depths of something you think still so strange.
Mighty and strong for I am who I am,
Breaking the bonds of that sex organ scam,
To be something that surpasses the boundaries of just women or man.
This collage is by Daphne Oude Geerdink. I chose it today (international women’s day) because of what she said inspired her to make this:
The definition of the soul is something different for everybody, I think. I’m fascinated by it and that’s why I wanted to make this. It’s your soul that makes you, you. Not your body or your pretty face.
When it comes to things like gender etc. I always take the status of equality. We are all equal. It is our actions, not our organs that define who and what we are. That, not organs, is who we fall in love with. What defines our strength and our character. Individuals. Souls. Humanity.
Peace, Smiles and Superpowers!
