one of my all time favorites
My mishap is the fact that
I’m destined to snap
It’s when I feel as though my body’s
Able to go my mind is ready to flow
Relationships, drugs, the people you hang with, etc. You gotta figure out what fucking your life up and you gotta get rid of it…or you can keep doing it and nothing will change
your stretch marks are like constellations on your skin, mapping out the galaxy that is your body.
Today I had the honor of listening to the beautiful Dolores Huerta speak. At 82 years old she was one hell of a woman, still standing strong and fighting for human rights. Her powerful words are still resonating in my head along with her radiating smile.
i pointed at her swollen belly confused at how my mother
had gotten so big in such little time
my father scooped me in his tree trunk arms and said
the closest thing to god on this earth is a woman’s body
it’s where life comes from
and to have a grown man tell me something so powerful at such a young age changed me to see that the entire universe rested at my mother’s feet
