Wearing Pain

she didn't go to
great lengths
to hide her
swollen red eyes
she didn't give a damn
what others thought
she wanted them
to see a woman
that was brave enough
to emerge
from her home
after hours of crying
with no make-up on
to cover up the fact
her heart was broken
but her wings undamaged

you know your
a mature lover
when you can sit
in each other's company
and be content
with getting lost
in each other's eyes
there's something
more penetrating
than a man's penis
and that's his eyes
penetrating your soul

Spiritual Warriors

A gem is not polished without rubbing, nor a person perfected without trials.
~ Chinese proverb
We all know how important mental and physical strength is for our well-being. But in order to overcome any hardship, and create a life that’s not just ordinary, but extraordinary – we also need spiritual strength. When all three kinds of strength – physical, mental, and spiritual are present, we can become spiritual warriors.
Being a spiritual warrior doesn’t mean we’re super-human. It means that we’re able to overcome hardship. This is what the secret code of the Ninja – the shadow-warriors of ancient Japan – can teach us.
The Ninja taught that one should embrace hardship. We all know that the hard times, when we have to grit our teeth and just simply continue walking uphill – step by step – are the ones where transformation begins.
The secret teachings of the Ninjas are based upon the ancient Chinese lore of the four elements: earth, water, fire and wind. It may sound esoteric, but this wisdom is really practical and down to earth. It can help us find a new perspectives when we get stuck in life.
1. Be Like The Earth
This secret is about being grounded. When we are grounded, we are steady and collected in mind and body. In terms of martial arts, to be like the earth means to stand your ground. In life this translates as staying steady and remaining grounded in reality.
2. Be Like Fire
Fire has tremendous power that can be used for survival – but it can also be destructive if not contained. A spiritual warrior embraces fire in the form of passion. The seat of fire energy is in the hara, or lower belly. Anger is also an expression of fire energy. Most times anger is destructive, but there are also times when it is a skillful emotion. Anger can give us the strength to stand up against injustice, and the courage to defend ourselves against all odds.
In terms of martial arts, fire signifies attack. In life, to be like fire means using passion in order to overcome barriers.
3. Be Like Water
The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.
~ Lao-Tzu ~
Water finds its way to the sea. No matter what mountains block the way. A mountain stream flows gracefully around rocks. In terms of martial arts, to be like water means to avoid, or deflect an attack. In life, to be like water means to find ways of reaching your goals by moving around an obstacle, instead of confronting it head-on.
4. Be Like The Wind
The wind can change direction at any moment. It has no fixed direction. As human beings, we suffer from the opposite: as life goes on, we become more and more fixed in the way we live and in the way we think. We become creatures of habit, and change seems more and more difficult.
In martial arts, to be like wind means to adapt to circumstances without pre-conceptions. In his book The Spiritual Practices of the Ninja, Ross Heaven says:
"The Ninja reckoned that 80 percent of our available energy is locked into habits that stem from generational and social conditioning. They became expert warriors by using their enemy’s reliance on habit against them and employing the element of surprise – the other 20 percent – themselves."
Because we are fixed in our ideas of who we are and what we are capable of, we miss countless opportunities to grow and develop. Doors open in life – but sometimes we don’t see them. We walk past because we don’t expect to see a door there. When we become like the wind, we can be light and flexible in our thinking an actions.
Every time we are stuck, it helps to find new ways to think about the situation. And this is the beauty of the Ninja teachings – they are simple, but deep.

The Unwrapped Gift

she was a beautiful mess
with her uncombed hair
tied back in a bun
wearing her favorite
worn-out yellow nightgown
with no underwear
she hadn't showered in three days
and still he embraced her
and wanted to have sex with her
all he saw was the woman
he ached to touch
the woman he loved
standing there as a gift
waiting to be unwrapped

You're A Queen

women, we are fools to think we have to beg for a man's attention to get him to spend time with us. we are fools to believe we have to use sex to get what we want. we are only demoralizing ourselves by being content with being his second option and sometimes last resort.
your a queen, so act like one. only then will you attract the attention of a king. all those other men will think your unattainable and out of their league. don't give them a second glance. remind yourself to straighten your crown next time you second guess yourself.

Old Photographs

she tried to bury her past
of dead end friendships
and her disappointing marriage
but the memories
kept creeping in
reminding her
how death comes
in many forms
she tried to forget
but she was surrounded
by pictures of dead things

The Wolf Inside You

i'm not always pretty
sometimes i am a wolf
going out to defend
my territory and young
women are like
that you know
if you threaten
their home or livelihood
watch out!
the savage comes out
and blood will be shed
