I'm a little behind - I'm not very good at being timely - but I wrote this for my dear Rose's (@areadingwriter ) #writingbleedinglines poetry prompt 🌹 Every week she will be giving phrases from her book #betweenmybleedinglines to be used by participants in a poem ☺️ Her book is available on Amazon, check it out 💕
Busy af. Grinding. But my dirty hair looked cute and I got to wear velvet in the summer. 😎I'm pretty content with my life at the moment. Thankful to have a job, a flourishing side-job made of dreams(thanks for buying my poetry 😭), a great foundation of family and friends and the universe-- which is bestowing so many blessings. Remember to stay kind and patient through it all. Some days are bad and they hurt, some days are hard and tiring but then there are those days when the light is just right and your breath is taken away by the sheer beauty of it all. Hang in there and feel everything, be vulnerable, be open, be courageous! Magic tends to happen when you least expect it. ✊🏽🦋 happy pride weekend to my queer community and everyone who participated in Dyke March today! #intersectionalqueermovement#dykemarch#freepalestine#blacklivesmatter#spilledink
honor courage and commitment is what you preach::::but tell me what it means when i can very well get gunned down at a routine traffic stop while reaching for my license that designates me as a protected veteran of the armed forces::::what does that mean, huh America::::when will i taste this freedom i swore to protect with my life::::what does it mean when the country i fight for does not fight for me but against me::::oh, what is that called, dear America 🇱🇷
My coffee thermos has driving anxiety and toddler tantrums every single time I am behind the wheel. I can't blame it, things (and people) full of caffeine shouldn't be confined to small spaces or cup holders.
This should be an interesting read. I just started watching Orange is The New Black. It's hard for me to watch shows about the criminal justice system. They're rarely accurate and it's my day job, so it feels like I'm still at work when I'm watching. It's gotta be really entertaining. I love how OITNB is written, draws out the storyline and deals with flashbacks. And I'm only on Episode Three! Now when it's concerning real life stories like women behind bars & understanding what's really going on in our system like this article, it's got my attention. Back to good Saturday reads...
We are raised thinking when we love, it is automatic that we are loved in return. This has destroyed souls, delicate souls still fighting their way out of the pain of not having someone return to them the love they have given.
I don't think we are taught that love is a choice. I feel if this message is made clear then perhaps we would manage our selves better when relationships don't work out.
