Primitive Primordial & Proud - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

We’ve come a long way so they say
This type of thinking does not convey
The absolute truth that doth lay
Hidden beneath lies that never seem to decay

Are you in this world or this dimension
Was being born your desire or your intention
When the time came and you were due
It was a woman you had to come through

In ancient civilizations women owned the land
Mother Nature, The Great Cosmic Mother, The Black Goddess was the command
The Universe, Life’s Death, The Sacred Marriage they all began

The first measurement of time was menstrual time
Women developed lunar calendars, ancient astrology in their prime
Translated chemical information into consciousness thru the dream
The Great Goddess principle promoted self-esteem

We’ve come a long way so they say
This type of thinking does not convey
The absolute truth that doth lay
Hidden beneath lies that never seem to decay

The Horrendous European Inquisition to destroy the female soul
The nine million menstrual murders, a holy act to behold
An inhuman punishment from the days of old
To prevent women from realizing they are being controlled

So! you’ve been giving the right to vote, to an education
Kali Ma! The Dark Mother, the source of all information
She gave all of life animation
Spirit-matter Her finest creation
When God got depressed She’s his inspiration

The female Soul is the World
Shakti, Shakina, Psyche and Sophia
The inner Goddess named Idea
Queen of Heaven, Giver of all Life, Mother of God

I Am Woman and
I Am Primitive-Primordial-Proud
A Woman’s essence, A Woman’s Shroud
