Firsts! OMG I’m over it!

I read about the delight,
People exclaim how wonderful!
That a woman be nominated…
To run for president.

How sad! my heart screams!!!!
That we are still so archaic…
That women still have to break a ceiling,
That the men did create.

And then I am angered by the women…
Who have allowed the programmed thoughts to thrive…
Believing a woman’s place,
Is the home with work on the side!

The women who think they need to kowtow,
To the whims of every man;
That power resides in the male species,
And we should delight for any attention.

Being woman is hard when you need to break ceilings,
To simply be the best that you are.
Asking for assistance and guidance is a gift,
Not a weakness or sign of incompetence.

Change must be embraced now!
Best person for the job, for this life!
I challenge each of us to look at the program,
And decide if it’s worth it, if it’s relevant,
If it serves the highest good of our hearts.

So stepping off the soap box…
Bring on the times of this future.
Obliterate every glass ceiling,
And lets ask of ourselves to simply be the best we are.

About R Congues

Funny enough, this blog has become the expression of my hopes, dreams, love and experiences. It came about because of the situation I discovered I was in, and I am delighted to see it grow and heal into something different: I am a parent of two children, one who has experienced severe anxiety that became disabling in all aspects of their life. I am a teacher of Maths, Science and Religious Education with a Masters in Special Needs Education; I am a qualified Reiki master, with a love of art and creative experience. I am not a professional in the fields of psychology or medicine. (If you are interested in these perspectives there are many internet sites to use.) I am simply expressing my experience in my own unique way.

    We celebrate the breaking through but why is the ceiling still there?
