Alrighty, I REALLY want you to watch this video, ‘cuz you just can’t get the full effect by reading the words. It’s kinda like how Shakespeare’s plays were meant to be seen, and NOT read. And I just compared myself to Shakespeare; that definitely warrants a thunderbolt of blasphemy. ANYWAYS, I know full well that some don’t want to watch, so I have decided to include the text of the poem just in case. But seriously ya’ll, just watch the video. It’s not that long. Okay, this introduction has gone on waaaay too long, so without further ado, here it is:
(And now, for you lazy bones:)
For those who feel gumption about their assumptions
concerning Mormon women, and what is most common.
You got something to learn, and now it’s MY turn
to teach, but not to preach.
You see, the priesthood is the authority to act in God’s name
It has nothing to do with status or fame.
Men aren’t sad that they can’t have babies
that’d be stupid; that’d be crazy!
And it’s NOT that the only thing I have in my life
is to be a future mother and wife, but still I hold no strife
.Because those who do hold it, never withhold it
On the contrary, I am empowered near every hour.
So no, I don’t hold the priesthood
I’m not sure I’d want to even if I could!
And, not to brag or sound immodest
but I. Am. A future goddess
who’s simply in training,
so I’m not complaining.
You see, the priesthood only adds
to what I’ve ALWAYS had
as a daughter of the King, to Him I will sing
and he’s already given
Every. Needful. Thing.
(including access to the priesthood)
