I’m An Angry Feminist

I feel it coursing through my veins
My wrists are heavy
The blood is thick and fast.

I’m an angry feminist.

Your idols are false
Your comments are misinformed
Or are you just ignorant?

I’m an angry feminist.

I hate the unease, the discomfort
the threat of a group of men
my keys in my hand.

I’m an angry feminist.

It’s not right, it’s not fair
He gets to live his life
But what about mine? What about ours?

I’m an angry feminist.

Overwhelmed with rage
Overwhelmed with emotion I cannot contain
I’m shaking.

I’m an angry feminist.

Bad news and bad people
Bad streams of content
How can you not see?

I’m an angry feminist.

Be for the people
Support the brave ones
Be there for me. For us.

I’m an angry feminist.

We need action and movement
I need to do something, anything
Or I will explode.

I’m an angry feminist.

Do I not belong here?
Or is it just the majority, the patriarchy and society
That want me to feel this way?

I’m an angry feminist.

Help me help others
Help me help you
Turn this pain into good.

I’m an angry feminist.

These tears are hot
This poem is unedited
It’s 5.30 in the morning.

I’m an angry feminist.

“Feminism is too extreme”
“I’m an equalist, a humanist”
“The #METOO movement shows weakness”

I’m an angry feminist.

My throat is tight
My eyes are straining, dry and wet
There’s so much to do.

I’m an angry feminist.

Are you?

    I loved this poem. Can definitely relate to it, especially of late. The older I get the more important feminism becomes in my life.

      Thank you Amy. It all kinda came out when I got pissed off that two very influential Instagrammers (both women) were defending/denying what Tony Robbins recently said about the #MeToo Movement!

      Isn’t this true? I remember as a teenager being glad that I was “totally equal” to the boys and that the days of feminism being needed were over….

      And then I grew up and experienced things and moved through life and realised that actually, damn, we still have a bit of a ways to go.

      Love this Lauren
