It feels like yesterday, just the other day, when the fears of a mutilated yoni caused me restless sleep. The part is mine, why would I have to give it up?
In those days, though hope shone bright, yesterday’s lingering fears of a mutilated tomorrow creaked and crooked along. The path felt stifling.
I wondered of children, not just girls but children, lacking of the privileges and security I had. I understood for some, their freedom may come with heft a price to pay.
Days went by. The troubles in the rest of the world touched me not, other than that where they touched those who came before me. They say darkness is a disease that spreads inside and out.
The days went by and revealed that the devil finds a home wherever room exists, my battles looked nothing like those I feared. I fought them still, overcome.
Today I stand, a woman far and away from days gone but their touch lingers still strong and true. I hear the young girl shout, asking of those I once felt so strongly for.
She will not let me rest, if only we all overcame ourselves then darkness would not move undetected …the devil would have no room amongst us.
I look back.
The battle rages on but no warrior cries seem to be emerging any more. Smoke rises today where fires touched yesterday: hunger lingers today where tilling hands were maimed yesterday.
Broken hearts where hope lived. Resentment where faith stood. Anger where love sheltered. Despair rules the day, dark skies and dull waters. Man walks amid destruction still…
That child, that innocence of my Heart, will not stop to cry: not until I act out, reach out, heed love and pour out. She wants a stand!
Therefore I must stand! And fight demons I know nothing of, even those that I do. To show Man that he can, women and men too.
I see not just the girls but boys, it takes two to tangle and create the other too. The intricate dance of the sexes, knows no gender but accompanies like shoes.
To raise the one, you must raise the other. So this Yoni, prays not just for the Souls it shall bear but the Lingam too, its other.
