I’m not the usual feminist

Standard

How do I fulfill myself?

I am more than the sum of the woman

That runs through all of my being and

Along with my femininity I also have strength,

No contradiction in terms


Don’t say I’m delicate

Because when I am it’s only for you,

Don’t say I’m any less of a fighter

Than men

It’s a given talent I’ve discovered and proved,

And I love it about myself


I’m brave, I’m fast and I’m sharp minded

And there will always be someone stronger so

Don’t define your masculinity at my expense

Because I do not aim to be superior,

I just want to be complete

Kata (Martial Arts)

Standard

I embody opposites

And transitions between them,

Loose flowing energy

I harness to a powerful burst

Be it through an exploding fist or kick –

I learn to aim,

In just the right timing,

And place –

I exert the precise amount of force,

No more than less

My offense is also a defense

 

I like to spend my days practicing

In this world of four dimensional space

Humble beneath clear skies,

I strive to move swiftly and fully

Parallel all directions and all lines.

I wish to stand straight and tall

While bowing low, close to earth,

Walk barefoot on an endless plain

Strip down – to who I am

Who I truly can be,

Yes – I dare show myself,

My passion sets me free

 

I grind myself thin,

Till I hear nothing

But the air in friction round my curves

It’s a desperate addiction – this need,

To perfect body and form

Inside the realm of speed

This, in some deep level,

Relieves my pain,

Reroutes neurons in my brain

 

This is how I concentrate

To forget –

I fill my mind with emptiness,

Close my eyes and breath,

Inhale this world

I wish so much

To become one with
