Poem: Matriarchal Voice

I am incredibly disjointed,
In my Native identity,

Move through oppressive patriarchal energy,
No one likes a matriarchal voice,
Marginalized,
Oppressed,
Silenced,

The land is not yours,
You have very little,
The matriarch is not valued,
Not heard,
Not wanted to be heard,

Matriarchal voice is not about abuse,
Not about power over,
Not about domination,
Not about violence,

A matriarchal voice is healing,
Is beautiful,
If of the Earth,
Her spirit is bright,
Wisdom,
Inner wealth,
Strength,

Listen,
To her voice.
