Sex Dreams IV

In case you’re confused about the Roman numeral in the title, this poem is an excerpt from a series of poems entitled “Sex Dreams” — the others (Sex Dreams I, Sex Dreams II, etc.) are not on the blog. πŸ™‚ The titles are a play on words, as the poems are really about dreams of preventing and healing trauma and creating a better culture around sexuality.

—————-

My deepest sex dream
is that one day
we will create a world
in which it is safe for
women and girls
to discover and explore
their sexuality
without fear
of physical
or reputational
danger.

A Prayer for You

This poem is dedicated to myself and to all of my readers. ❀

β€œThe places where you have the biggest challenges in your life become the places where you have the most to give, if you do your inner work.” –Tracy McMillan

I pray
that the pain of your today
becomes the pride of your tomorrow.
I pray
that the struggle of your today
becomes the strength of your tomorrow.
I pray
that the torment of your today
becomes the triumph of your tomorrow.
