A Poem about Women.



Agony of birth,
time of mirth,
born in meekness,
taken by darkness.

Slave to love,
the crimson dove,
abused by sexuality,
broken by maternity.

Cheated in wage,
ravaged by age,
abandoned by progeny,
devoured by misogyny.

Go 'round the bend,
alone in the end,
time to die,
and not know why.


About the Author

I was born in Melbourne Australia on March 4th, 1957. My mother worked in a pie van at Victoria market. My father drank. My brother, sister and I used to take time off school, go to the museum, botanical gardens or sneak into the zoo. When I was 9 we moved to a country town not far from the city. I enjoyed roaming around the paddocks. I didn't do well at school, my lack of concentration made studying difficult, I dropped out to pursue a career in retail. I managed an aquarium successfully. In 1985 I was diagnosed with schizophrenia, later with paranoid schizophrenia, with this came heavy cannabis use. I was in and out of hospitals for a long time. New medications have made me stable, I haven't been hospitalized since 2000. Psychosis radicalized my thinking, I realized I could make something out of the darkness. That was the beginning of my paranormal journey.
