The Dawn of a New Eve

Though raised with stifling choices; Virgin, Mother, Whore,
yes, taught the cutting bite, the bloody edge of gray,
I've grown past the mindless role of woman, I abhor,

past the sin strewn path's on which too many stray;
a wick-less, often witless foil, a blunted blade,
yes, taught the cutting bite, the bloody edge of gray.

What roles has he, so prick adorned, waylaid?
He, the Master born, he the Godhead given me,
a wick-less, often witless foil, a blunted blade.

He be not God, and I not his, I disagree.
I create, give birth, bring hope, have all he lacks 
He, the Master born, he the Godhead given me.

Shield mate, warrior, child-bearer, whose heart impacts
life grows within my womb all ancient mysteries... 
I create give birth, bring hope, have all he lacks. 

And, I'll not accept this male-ordered hierarchy.
though raised with stifling choices; Virgin, Mother, Whore
life grows within my womb and all ancient mysteries,
I've grown past the mindless role of woman, I abhor.

    I had passed this by as "hot potato" of a write.." I think it will be hard to do it justice on one level..) If I try to go indepth:) so I will just put that I value equality though the unequality of life has to be engaged..With, and recognized for what it is.." It is a write that strikes resonance in my soul..And thought in my mind..!

    Sometimes the lot of a woman is demeaning but the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world..Enjoyed reading but I had to read several times to really get the gist of what you were trying to say..If for a contest, winners' list for sure..Must be a contest for I have seen this form lately..I need to look it up ..I can't remember if I have written one or not..Thanks for stopping by my blog and poem..Yes, growing old is not for sissies..Sara
