Women A point of view
A point of view
They – flowers of diverse, exquisite, exotic, mysterious beauty –
are beauties that are meant to feed the eyes of man,
are beauties that are meant to stimulate the minds of man,
are beauties that are meant to set fires in the hearts of man,
are beauties that are meant to give wings to the spirit of man,
are beauties that are meant to be the resting places for the souls of man.
Another point of view
They have become the thorns upon the stems of their rose self.
They have become the thistles that protect their flower self.
They have become the poisonous plants that kill pursuers.
They have become the weeds that strangle, that over run their beauty.
They have become the assassinators killing all that nourishes compassion
They have become the destroyers of passion, of love, of life, of the spirit.
They have become the controllers, men – responsible – has not evolved.
They have become the conductor, as man is not fast enough to keep up or get past.
