Love in the Ether

You think of me, and your secret half-smile

crosses sea and mountain, 

gives me goosebumps,

love beyond the natural.

The body is as light as the soul,

minerals soar like butterflies.”

-Adélia Prado

 

Find Me Where the Wild Things Are

“He said, 

“you are beautiful”

I told him

“beautiful”

is a lazy and lousy way to describe me”

Everybody Dies, But Not Everybody Lives

Struggle and criticisms are prerequisites for greatness.”

– Prince Ea

Bookmark this, watch this on repeat until it sinks in.

I cut him out at the root. He was my favourite tree, rotting, threatening the foundations of my home.”

– Warsan Shire

Apply Within

You once told me
You wanted to find
Yourself in the world –
And I told you to
First apply within,
To discover the world
within you.

You once told me
You wanted to save
The world from all its wars –
And I told you to
First save yourself
From the world,
And all the wars
You put yourself
Through.

― Suzy Kassem, Apply Within
