Poetry "Stand Your Ground" By: Nubian Star

Stand Ur Ground
Trayvon Martin, Marrissa Alexander, Jordan Davis, Derek Williams, Darius Simmons,
Alexander Wilson, Oscar Grant
Names inked in history for wanting too much life
Wanting too many rights
Wanting to defend themselves
Needing to stand their ground
Now the bullets resound globally
And the cries are attempting to be smothered
With the pillow sewn with Betty Ross’ needle
The plight of endangered people
Has been historically ignored
The premises of this very place is open doors
They came to this country under shield of cross
The mayflower never bloomed
The shackles ensued
Small pox blankets cover the wounds
Festering hate
Neighborhoods behind special gates
But the truth is we’re all incarnated
Falling for the bait
40 acres
never made it
Neither did the mule
This is justice so cruel
And they wonder why ppl riot
While they died
Can’t pass bills
And stay alive
Senators debate
Lawmakers are fakes
Shots to the wall
Gets u 20 yrs out the gate
Marrissa don’t deserve that fate
And neither do I
But I promise if I’m followed
That person gone die before me
Young bodies in hearses I’m tired of seeing
Black and brown ppl are not equals
1% doesn’t make u the majority
The struggle of the minority
Is rarely reported
Media creating fictitious stories
But what about his story
What about the fact that never again
Will Oscar’s daughter see his smile
Never again will Jordan’s music beat wildly
Cause his color snuffed out his cause
Taking out the garbage is a death sentence y’all
If you are
This conspiracy is real
Racially profiled
Can get you killed
And ur murderer free
When will it ring for me
When will I be able to walk these streets
When will this ground my ancestors tilted be for me
When will the laws protect
End Point

Tightening a Vagina by: Star Marie

Natural Remedies for Tightening a Vagina

Many women out there would face the issue of a loose vagina at a certain point of time. A part of the female reproductive system, the vagina is made of mucous membranes and fibrous tissues that become lax and loose due to age, hormonal disturbances, frequent sex or child birth.

Tighten a Vagina

For those who are in the dark or don’t research. Here are some of the most common and most effective ways. These options would help you tighten the vaginal walls and restore the elasticity of the same to a great extent.

Kegel Exercises

One of the best recommended home remedies for vaginal tightening is Kegel Exercises that focus on the tissues and muscles present in the vaginal walls and the pelvic floor. The most basic form of Kegel exercises involves simply contracting and expanding these muscles to restore elasticity and strength to the pelvic muscles. However, here are some alternate and really effective ways in which you can do the same exercise.1. Try holding back your urine every time you need to urinate. This would contract the muscles in your vagina, thereby restoring their strength and elasticity. You can also attempt to stop midway during urination for about 5 seconds before urinating again. Repeat this until you have finished urinating completely.2. Contract the muscles in your groin and keep them contracted for about 10 seconds before relaxing the same. Wait for 10 seconds before repeating the procedure. Do 15 repetitions of the same exercise to form one complete set and follow up with at least 4 sets a day.3. You can perform Kegel exercise while sitting down as well. Accordingly, sit on a hard chair and bend forward. As you do so, make sure to contract the pelvic muscles from back to front. Maintain the position for about 15 seconds before returning back to your normal stance. Now repeat the practice while contracting the muscles from front to back. Follow up with 10 sets of the same exercise.

Vaginal Cones

Another very effective way to tighten the vaginal muscles would be to use vaginal cones. Shaped like your regular tampons, these cones come with different weights attached to them. Fix the lowest weight to the cone and insert it into your vagina. Contract the muscles of your vagina to hold the cone in place and maintain the stance for about 10-15 minutes before letting it drop. Repeat this exercise at least twice a day for best benefits. As you progress, increase the weight attached to the cone and try holding the same inside the vagina for longer periods.

Alternate Exercises

Lay down on your back. Now raise your right leg slowly while keeping your left leg grounded. Maintain the stance for about 15 seconds before lowering your right leg. Repeat the exercise with your left leg to complete one set. Follow up with about 10-15 sets in a day. Another variant to this exercise involves keeping your legs grounded and moving both of them laterally and medially. Repeat the exercise for about 10 minutes and follow up with 4 sets at regular intervals throughout the day.

Yoga for Vaginal Tightening

If you practice yoga on a regular basis, you would know that there are certain stances and exercises that help to tighten the vaginal muscles. Repeating these exercises at regular intervals throughout the day would enable you to get a strong, tight vagina in a very short span of time.

Herbal Home Treatments for Vaginal Tightening

Certain herbs can be used for vaginal tightening, and can be used in homemade creams and washes to get a tight vagina. Accordingly, a concoction made of gooseberry boiled in water can be used as a regular wash to douche the vagina. Regular use of this concoction would restore elasticity, strength and suppleness to the vaginal walls. You can use diluted lime juice, alum powder and pickling spices. Peuraria Mirifica and Oakgall are two herbs that are widely used in products aimed at vaginal tightening. These herbs alone are known to tighten….
