Veneration of the Dark Godis is Veneration of the Whole Wombn. Our Power is in Darkness, but first wo-men have to leave our patriarchal conditioning behind - leave the father's house and his rules! Embrace the Way of the Womb!

I first read these pages in 5th grade. I was quite young when i realized that women are natural enemies to one another within male society. That it is other women, not men, who make life harder for young mothers, for young women who buck the societal norm of their mothers. For women who refuse to be boxed in.

I just love your writing. Yes, I had to divest from all my relationships especially my mother, sisters and other relatives. I had to find myself, of course I went down the usual paths, on each were tools to be used as I chipped away at the years of not knowing to truly understanding ME. I totally understand where you are going here and have lately found myself, just sick of it all. Today, I choose my sisters, I have no mother, I have no brother. My daughter that I adopted survived in spite of my craziness, but I learned. I did raise an honest Wombn and for that I am grateful my only regret is that she, like me, let my heart lead when it should have been my spirit. For all the things that I allowed men (unknowingly of course) to do to me, it is women who have hurt me, scandalized me, used me, etc., the most. I trusted them BECAUSE they were women. OHHHH but I learned. I learned that many of them, like myself, did not know what they were doing, they had no clue as to who they could be, the greatness of themselves. I was not born with that information, so I don't blame women who don't know. I realize that I live in a society that has a program for me, a wombn, a feminine. I don't know what made me reject the program, but I knew I was something BETTER than what I was supposed to be or supposed to do and I went LOOKING FOR IT, I refused to accept the social norm of womanhood. I thank the wild 60s for that. Thanks so much for this piece because it is nothing but the truth.

Writing is my Joy and Pleasure. I've been writing creative pieces, analytic pieces and empirical pieces since I learned how! I use my pen and prose to expose people to things they either don't know or never thought of. I am political, analytic, critical all things that Virgo/Gemini is. The Logos is the Eros to me. <3
