I Have Been She

I have been She
Beloved by few
Reviled by many

I have been She
Devoted, Compassionate, and

I have been She
Beloved by Teachers
Reviled by Students

I have been She
Stalking knowledge, and
Eating from the Tree

I have been She
of Understanding
in a Woman's Body, and

I have been She
Reviled for my Impertinence

I have been She.
Who am I now?

Stalking knowledge
with a single-minded masculinity,
I am She
Taking Flight in Experience

I am She
Who Listens
Who Watches
Who Feels

I am She
of the Web of Life
and the Wheels of Life

and So Are You

A'ho, Matake Oyasin
