    Erato – muse of my verse
    Inspire from above
    Showers of love
    That fall like an inverse curse
    Into these dry eyes
    That have not seen the demise
    As tears expanding
    Mind now understanding
    The strife
    Darkness in life
    True beauty on earth
    And women’s real worth

    We begin in the Garden
    Site of the original sin
    Hearts tender start to harden
    Shame wrapped in animal skin
    Woman, mother of all
    Forbidden fruit
    Hawwah, blamed for our fall
    Now the Devil takes root
    2 halves creating corruption
    Reproduction and destruction
    But history only remembers Eve’s seduction

    As history continues…
    Behold, great immoral sinews
    Athenian daughters - currency exchanged
    Virgin girls - marriages arranged
    Debt collection and oppression
    Disconnection grows
    Juxtapose another patriarchal society
    One with greater impropriety
    Law of Romulus - unnatural selection
    Misogyny bottomless – natural infection

    Psyche taking shape…
    Slavery, abuse, child loss, rape
    This collection of pain
    Women carry like a ball and chain
    Passing it down like a weight undeserved
    To these young minds ill preserved
    Girls made to want the male gaze
    And satisfy carnal ways
    Sonnet 129
    Points to the sign
    Lusty X-X-X
    And on to the next
    Regarded only as pleasure
    Left, undiscovered treasure

    Young girls suffer in silence
    Quiet their voices and endure the violence
    Don’t think, don’t speak, don’t act
    Your life is nothing but a matter of fact
    Kill creativity, spontaneity, and intuition
    Or be forced into submission
    Promise to obey
    And these knuckles and fist
    The ones that you kissed
    Will stay at bay
    Too late! Bullet to the head
    Left for dead
    Pen name AKA Gul Makai
    So say goodbye

    What have men done!
    Beautiful women shun
    Will this pen no longer write?
    Girl from Swat Valley takes flight
    Brain swelling
    Girl’s rebelling
    Just wanted an education
    In Birmingham fighting for salvation
    Malala, take rise
    Heart inflame
    Second reprise
    Sign your name,
    AKA Nobel-Peace-Prize

    So take notice
    Of this blue lotus
    Because victory is blooming
    Through a spirit all-consuming
    But you must trust your Source
    To stay the course
    Knowing true beauty lies inside
    A fire that can’t be denied
    To understand is to proclaim
    To this Beautiful Woman aflame
    You are a female force and vitality
    Unleash it and know your totality
