Poetry On Odyssey: Immaculate
Start writing a post

Immaculate civilization;
The slaughtered horses sent to war
Will never be delivered compensation
To their families afar
The fearful eye of the animal
Obscures the guise of harnessing emotion
To exist in a nonexistent plane
For existence means everything.

Immaculate conception;
Taken from their warm stomachs,
Their mothers will reach out to grasp but cling to their deception
And feed lies down their gullets
Menacing pride, cheerful joy
Manic peering down the windowsill
Mother's lisp clears the whole room
But you are still here, with her.

Immaculate division;
The babes are sent to the coach
For their yearly inspection
The ruler will pervert the broach
That protects the vulnerability
Which encapsulates their existence
The perversion becomes concrete
And they are groomed at birth

Immaculate emasculation;
The sawed-off limbs
Leaves the Man to wear a falsification
The identity is battered and limited
To non-motile constraints
His smile widens as the clouds spiral
Around Him
Since He is the only existence

Immaculate crucifixion;
Over the clouds, the hearts are crossed
The eyes are blinded and turned to fixation,
For the soul's value is lost
To the observer, the Man is not more
Than an empty glass of water.
The brain relaxes into its skull
And melts into the chest cavity.

Immaculate emotion;
Heals the battered and bruised
The touch of the state has proved His devotion.
The heavy hearts have gained a yellow hue.
Over and over the loss will be substantial
Over and over they will value property
Over freedom of the one who provides
Over the children that must die.

Immaculate fanatic;
The eclipsed broken hearted
Let's the crowd resemble motionless static
The dreams are never started
Only the most true
Will become nothing and like it
Horrors of filth and wretched guts
Fill the stadium with cremated fans.

Immaculate seduction;
Do not threaten those who are alone
The heads of the erection
The hands are a phone.
Brain matter on the textbook.
The laid-out body of the Woman
Caresses the mind of the yearner.
He is then sent to war.

Immaculate election;
The divide will conquer humanity
The grim truth will influence the reception
And will decrease the range of decency
Please do not fret for this is the process
The division of the world will make it easier
To guide the knife down the middle
Of all Americans.

Immaculate objectification;
The pounds of waste is used as currency
The daughters are of the primal disposition
To the Men who rule currently
Oh, heart and lungs!
Fill them with water!
Let the skinned bird fly!
Let the amputated antelope run!
Let the limbless man dream!
For the eyes from the sky are watching us!

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
