Flipping the Script 

Dear Humanity,

 

I feel for women in our society

Conditioned insecurity—aesthetic anxiety

 

The pressure to look the unattainable look

Makeup valued more than a self-help book

 

Heels so high, disconnected from our earth

Our egos stroked by corporations, lost worth

 

Everything fake—what’s real anymore?

Hiding what we feel, to fake it some more

 

Divide and conquer cannot continue!

Are we ready to replace this old menu?

 

Emotional manipulation fresh out the gate

Neurotically obsessing about our weight

 

We’re taught to compete over men

Chase diamonds, gossip, be a perfect ten

 

Over-priced products, buy it now

Innocence robbed, we must no longer allow!

 

Equal beings again, not conditioned by darkness

Focus flipped inward, free your inner artist

 

Changing our hearts—it’s time to check in

One in five girls cutting—what pain within

 

This isn’t about feeling sad or defeated

Find compassion, take action, intention completed

 

Children must be educated about the conditioning

Antidote to this tragedy: inner petitioning

 

Unraveling the messages, starting new

It’s time to stand up, soul up, we are through

 

Redefining women— authors of a fresh start

Expressing through passion, love and art

 

Designer products— no—you’re worth is within

If you go in that direction, you’ll never win

 

Forget propaganda that gives us no choices

Stop competing, unite our spiritual voices

 

Who holds the controller to our mental well being?

It has to be us—imagine we start truly seeing

 

Rise and shine sweet ladies, I have sweet news

We’re flipping that script—no more time to lose

 

So sorry to say, you’re not a princess my dear

You’re so much more, a warrior—no fear

 

Time to unleash the super powers within you

Be brave, heal and manifest something new

Love, MS. K
