-Michelle K., Loving Yourself is a Political Statement. (via serenesxul)
someone to love me
in all of my forms.
To find passion
in the dirty, gory bits.
To sing lullabies
to my anxieties.
in my truths.
I will do it myself."
No one will accompany you for a lifetime, so you should learn how to adapt to loneliness.
No one will help you forever, so you should always strive on your own.
Everything you love is here
AU: Allison’s funeral.
“You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
"13 things my uncle told me before he died:
not everyone has the blessing to understand sadness
when waiting at the bus stop, it’s okay to smoke cigarettes
never touch anyone else’s clothes at the laundromat
it’s okay to miss the people who were bullets to you
when your grandmother asks you how you are, be honest
never be afraid to say “no” even after you’ve said “yes”
if someone tells you graffiti isn’t art, prove them wrong
remember people by their eye color not their clothes
you’re allowed to like dark chocolate with tangerines
don’t lie that you don’t have a lighter when you really do
turn your phone off every once in a while and find the moon
if you want a tattoo, don’t let anyone tell you not to get it
if you ever find yourself at the graveyard, read the names"
(poems from my uncles grave)
I’m the kind of person who stands in the back, observing everything that goes around me. I do not need to be in the spot light to be happy, yet I don’t like to be in the back where everything is dark and silent. I usually see more than others because I notice things people normally don’t pay attention to. I can learn so much about someone just by watching their actions and their expression. I guess in a way, you can say that I’m very perceptive.
