The Beauty Myth

Book: The Beauty Myth

Author: Naomi Wolf

Last line

The next phase of our movement forward, as individual women, as women together, as tenants of our bodies and this planet, depends now on what we decide to see when we look in the mirror.

What will we see?

Poem

we will see

everything

we’ve been trained

not to see

carriers of future generations

refusing incarceration

of role boundaries

wanting full expression

of individuality

and knowing

what we want

preservers of culture

writing new rules

with color-changing ink 

of freedom

redefining norms

which bend and stretch

to accommodate the soul

we will witness

planet renewal

as tenants transform

fluid lanscapes

paint colors 

beyond rainbows

on ethereal backdrops
