PERIODE 28

You are my rhythm.
You come and you go with the moon.
My lunar love.
My tidal stream.
My loyal friend,
why do you hurt me, 
why do you hurt me, again?

I embrace our stormy encounter, our deep reunion.
And I will let you go again, kiss you a goodbye. 
Like a sanguine sunset.
For you, to rise again.

And like every friend, you do it your own way. 
Sometimes you surprise me like gentle rain. 
Or roll in with the heavy dark clouds of a thunderstorm.
You are my rebellion inside and I surrender to you.

You connect me
to life.
To earth.
And to all women, past and present.
Our ancient bond. A tribute to our greatest commitment.

And therefore I let you hurt me, my blood sacrifice. 
You make me tender. You make me strong.
I honour you.

I am strong. I am woman.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
