Ladies…its time to be angry
Men all over FB just logged off…lol
But seriously…
Anger is evoked by true strong emotions
We sit by and talk about everything…
And nothing at all…
We will talk about our sisters hair, nails
That outfit that…
She knew she had no business wearing…lol
And yet NOTHING is said…
IN order to change something…
You must accept it
This is the first step toward humility…
WE are being played…
WE are being used…
BUT…
Not by the men in our lives…
We are being used by a system…
Which is separating us from our DIVINE RIGHTS
You see it is stripping us of our loving tendencies…
This system says…You don’t need him…
You can do bad all by yourself
I can be both mommy AND DADDY
And to help you out in case you get stuck…
There are these great little programs to help you…
The truth is…
Those little programs…are the noose around our necks
Too many times we will turn away from the men in our families…
Im not talking about Joe Trick from down the block…lol
But the REAL men our lives….
And we will turn away from him because
He isn’t educated enough
…even though we are learning that our “Education” is filled with lies
He isn’t working enough
He doesn’t have a good car
The list tends to go on and on…
Relationships do not JUST happen
No one wakes up and just has a dream come true (usually)
We have to work for and toward these goals
We should be angry….
Because we know better than this…
YOU are the foundation in your family
YOU set the tone for your life
YOU balance his energy…
Be angry…
But if you waste that anger on
Who did what to whom
Or
Who owes YOU
You are wasting your energy…
Get angry
SCREAM….
The very system which has created these little programs to HELP you…
Also says…
If YOU are raped…
IT IS ALL….
Now HEAR ME….
This system says it is
ALL YOUR FAULT…
How do you like big brother now?
We are getting ready to show you how very beautiful
ANGRY WOMEN can look…
Because You understand…
WE are (NineTribe)
So
Are
You

Rape


***I am not trying to trigger anyone….

I have been on a few posts about Rape…
There is a very naive part of myself which says…
Everyone knows that rape is a crime…
But what has been demonstrated to me is much more harsh
Rape is not an instance…
It does not just happen
You were selected
Hunted…often
It was narrowed down…
That YOU
Yes YOU
Do not get a choice…
Rape is agonizing
It can destroy your soul
It can create wide awake nightmares
You hear sounds from behind a bush
You hear hushed voices down an isolated alley
You hear your inner voice screaming
PLEASE PLEASE…STOP
It is not just 20 minutes in time, you see
Its every moment in every day that will come thereafter
It is not how many drinks
Or how many times she said no
It is not that sexy dress
Or those “She asked for it stilettos”
Because you see…
Once you become another persons PREY…
You will begin second guessing yourself
Did I say NO loud and often enough?
Did I REALLY want sex?
Was I teasing him?
DID I ASK FOR IT??????

Understand my good friends and family…
Rape never stops…
It is never a single act…
It is a train wreck that happens over and over again…
So until we STOP blaming the survivors….
Be they grown men and women or children…
We will always ONLY be representing the CRIMINALS

Please today…choose to do something different…

Running


You cannot run away
We tell children this all the time
I know I was told that
It took me a long time to listen
I ran from an abuser
I ran from a cheater
I ran from a stigma that claimed
I wasn’t good enough
Too Light
Too Dark
Too thick
Too Skinny
Too Smart
Not Smart enough
I ran…
I ran from a date
A moment in time
A moment that changed my present
I ran from a memory
I ran
And ran
And ran
Until one day I realized
I took all of these things with me
My insecurities
My fear
My battered and tattered heart
Until the day when
I decided…
To be still
And be my OWN blessing
Pat my own back
Love myself…
Because until we learn that
You Alone Are Enough…
We will always be running…
From something…

Final Cover

Domestic Violence is a painful reality to too many people, both male and female alike. When constructing this book and gathering the very special women that stepped up, with no thought about, themselves or their personal gain; we tried to keep in mind that this is NOT just literature. Yes, unfortunately, in too many cases…this is reality. We must remember that we are all one. One part of creation; and we must find a way to live harmoniously. This book was not easy to write, there are so many ghosts hidden within the words. But we would be remiss, if we didn’t also recognize the love and kindness that is also written within each line.
We, of course, want to dedicate this book to our families; they have given us so many gifts…just in having had the pleasure of loving them. We hope that you all know how very much you mean to us. To our loved ones, who are watching down on us…we hope you are as pleased with this venture, as we all are.
To Her: We are sorry. We are sorry that you had to endure the pain, which most only read about. Know that every page written, has been about how very much we love you. And during those moments. When your mind takes you to that place of isolation…we hope you realize:
You
Are
Not
Alone
