I Heart MY Body


My second spoken word piece - That you can hear me speak here.



It's time to reacquaint ourselves; with humans and with trees...


In a world that doesn't speak MY truth


Where is it that I start?


It shouldn't be any weirder than saying EYES


Or 'lungs'


Or 'heart'




And yet, we don't say it LOUD


We don't say it proud




We don't call things by their proper name




Instead, we reel, Victorian hangovers of embarrassment and shame




I don't have a 'fanny'


A 'foo foo'


Or 'lady bits'





The world must accept that I have more than one set of lips


They're abandoned by some textbooks


Overlooked by 'educators'


Even relatively well-taught peeps persist in calling them 'vaginas'





What's wrong with saying VULVA?!


It's not lewd - Not gross - Not vulger




It's not even techinically incorrect




Try it - Use it - Roll it around


It's not even technically incorrect




Don't be so circumspect


During this era of disconnect - from ancestral wisdom


Mind and Body harmony..


REACH for insightful and uplifting imageray


Spoken word projects


Inclusive, artistic photography





Or


Weep;


For generations of women


Raised uncertain


Words unspoken


Fearing distortion


Seeking surgery


For normaility


We have to see that this is wrong!


Right?



How can we love you, if we don't know what you're called?



How can THEY respect you, if they don't know what your name is?





I want MORE for MY daughters


For knowledge to be their power


Respect to be their RIGHT


I want them to know their bodies - LOVE their bodies


Command their own free will - without a fight





So come on world, wake up!


It's time, for enlightened education


And not just from their school..




Perpetuating infant-speak is a very long way from cool




lets use basic anatomical terms in a baby-making context




Build from our low-foundation of penis in vagina




Let's talk about what happens after sex


Grow an accurate lexicon for all the happens next


Because, without language as descriptors, we lose respect for all the rest





So,


The vulva lips are labia


Majora and minora


enclosing the entrance to our famoud friend, vagina




Sometimes these lips are wider - short - long or flat


Whatever their appearance - KNOW they're PERFECT just like that


They can be light, dark or multiple shades


Labia size, shape and colour also change as we age


They can alter when we're pregnant


Temporary or permanent





Our vulva lips;


Our genital encasement


Containing all our external reproductive equipment





Also enclosed in those unique labia, for us;


Are...


The anus, urethra and external clitoris


Ahhh - The infamous clitoris


Know this important distinction in describing the structure -


What we see and feel outside are merely a small piece of its picture


The depths and complexity within us;


Another anatomical misrepresentation!


Primed for ecstatic childbirth


Not just sex and masterbation


Well versed in the latters


Climatic pleasurable sensation


it's likely the roots are in evolutionary procreation





The vulva houses it all - keeps it mostly hidden - safe from damage


Then, travelling internally;


We've a stretchy, muscular, vaginal passage


The uterus stores our monthly blood


Grows the babies - and their placenta


The cervix holding fast and strong - 'til babe's lungs send sign;


NOW's the time to meet her!




Beforehand, the cervix; is HARD - like the very TIP of your nose


Preparing to birth; Soften, Efface, Dilate - is how it goes


UNDISTURBED?


This happens naturally - at a pace as unique as you and me


Don't even get me started on intervention


We'll go there next time - shall we?






So - Wisdom teaches us to HONOUR and attend to ALL our cycles



Not divorce our bodies from their Earth


Form tribes of CONSUMPTION disciple





SEE the whole world progress through



Empowered - Respected CHILDREN



Learn FROM them with acceptance too


Elevate them to teacher and from their perspective - VIEW


And REFLECT upon our childhood selves


The adults we've become


Awaken from each cyclic phase a calmer, more peaceful one




Hear this call DEAR adults


With children and without


This planet's inheritors need assistance


And I can hear them SHOUT



Learn of natures cycles - the seasons and language for these


It's time to reacquaint ourselves - with humans and with trees


RESPECT for EVERY person


Dignity for the Earth




The time has come for all of us to DEMAND a better birth




So,



Teach THIS to the children - with transparency


RESPECT our youth


Then - BEHOLD their capacity


For teaching US HUMANITY


HEAR them SPEAK THE TRUTH.
