“It feels like the world is folding up around me, like origami paper, and I’m trapped inside of its breathless center.”

—   Jennifer Elisabeth, Introduction to the Born Ready book (via whentheheartwaits)

I wanted the past to go away, I wanted
to leave it, like another country; I wanted
my life to close, and open
like a hinge, like a wing, like the part of the song
where it falls
down over the rocks: an explosion, a discovery;
I wanted
to hurry into the work of my life; I wanted to know,

whoever I was, I was

alive
for a little while.

—   Mary Oliver (via observando)

But I don’t shut up and I don’t die.
I live
and fight, maddening
those who rule my country.

For if I live
I fight,
and if I fight
I contribute to the dawn.

—   Otto René Castillo (via observando)

This is a collection of Tweets from military veterans reacting to the police response in Ferguson. 

And if this shit doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what will.

Look. At. This. Shit.

LTMC: More signs that Ferguson is becoming a turning point in our national conversation on the militarization of police.

“i don’t want to hate the president
i don’t want to go to harvard
i don’t want to win the pulitzer prize
i just want to sit in my bathtub
and think about relationships i will never have
with people i will never meet
and then go lay in my bed
with a magnifying glass
and count all the stiches in my sheets
until i fall asleep
and wake up
to repeat again.”

—   Ellen Kennedy (via observando)
It’s not that history is repeating itself. Just it never really changed in the first place.

“I stopped going to therapy
because I knew my therapist was right
and I wanted to keep being wrong.
I wanted to keep my bad habits
like charms on a bracelet.
I did not want to be brave.
I think I like my brain best
in a bar fight with my heart.
I think I like myself a little broken.
I’m ok if that makes me less loved.
I like poetry better than therapy anyway.
The poems never judge me
for healing wrong.”
