STOLEN WORDS – Georgiann Carlson

Women’s words

Brave & Reckless

our words have been stolen
twisted
taken out of context
shoved down our throat
hidden
lied about
destroyed
silenced
a woman’s words
often go unheard
even when she is
SCREAMING
words are power
words are life
words describe reality
all the things men in power
do not want women to have
they are even willing to kill us
to make sure we never speak
a word
 
 

I’m an artist, a writer, a vegetarian, an animal rights activist, and quite a few other things as well. I love books, cats, philosophy, good conversation, Chicago and the arts. So my blog is full of bits and pieces but it’s the bits and pieces that make life interesting to me. You can read more of my writing at Rethinking Life
