The Divine Feminine: Unleashing the Goddess Within

“the closest thing to god on this earth is a woman’s body”

when my mother was pregnant

with her second child I was four

i pointed at her swollen belly confused at how

my mother had gotten so big in such little time

my father scooped me in his tree trunk arms and

said the closest thing to god on this earth

is a woman’s body it’s where life comes from

and to have a grown man tell me something

so powerful at such a young age

changed me to see the entire universe

rested at my mother’s feet
