Primeval Me!

Me, primeval, evil me,

I tossed my veils,

Upon the sea,

Cast them aside,

Have I, I cried,

The problem is this,

No longer can I hide,

I lost them,

Can’t you see,

So I could find,

Myself in me,

And maybe you,

Could find me too,

Find in me,

What you can’t see,

A person beyond,

My gender,

Gender is only a thing,

We are all of one kind,

Human.

**** I wrote this poem a some time ago when I lived in Saudi Arabia near the Persian Gulf.  Woman are viewed differently, to say the least, for there are many long held cultural viewpoints within  Saudi Arabia as a culture, as there are as many viewpoints within all other culturally bound countries, and that includes America.
