Inanna's Tree in the Garden of Eden as a Modern Narrative
I am Anna:
The Woman by the River
I'm a teenager now and I'm starting to perceive the world with different eyes, yes, I guess you could say with my own eyes. And so I've come to the conclusion that life is like a river ... you can either let yourself drift along, or you can take it into your own hands.
The uprooted tree in the river
I am beginning to understand that and I have realised it: Adults also have their weaknesses. They do many things only because they want to look good or to compensate for their own frustration. In doing so, they always seek power and superiority.
Mother sometimes annoys me and I don't think it's ok when she takes her frustration out on me. Maybe she is jealous of me? - And then, on the other hand, I also notice that I am suddenly noticed by men ... It's a mind-blowingly strong feeling! And I enjoy being affirmed as a woman in this way!
But on the other hand, it all overwhelms me too. Sometimes I think I'd rather not grow up at all! It's all happening so fast! And the feelings are so strong ... It's like the ground is being washed away from under my feet ... And adult life is so complicated ...

But I am determined to take my life into my own hands! Nor do I always want to be told how to behave, what to do and how to feel.
Finally I tell myself: I don't have to become like them...
Instead, I try to tell myself to be patient! It will be fine ... You still have a lifetime - YOUR life!
And time will bring what is to come when it is ripe.
The Throne and the Bed
In any case, I will take my life as a woman for myself and live it. I am looking forward to meeting the right man. To him I want to give myself away.
Love is something wonderful. It is the highest good on earth. If I hold on to it, I am convinced that it will turn out well.
