ATTENTION ALL GIRLS AND LADIES: if you walk from home, school, office or anywhere and you are alone and you come across a little boy crying holding a piece of paper with an address on it, DO NOT TAKE HIM THERE! take him straight to the police station for this is the new ‘gang’ way of rape. The incident is getting worse. Warn your families. Reblog this so this message can get accross to everyone.
I will always reblog things like this, it won’t ruin your blog or the look of it, and this could potentially save a life.
This is fake alright? Gangs do not lure you with children to rape you. It’s the most asinine thing ever.
Emotion of the day: pride.
I am so grateful for so many things and I’m so sad about so many things. But I’m doing stuff and I’m not silent anymore and some days are so tiring, I can feel my blood rushing and then slowing and then rushing, and wow I never thought any of this would be possible but my mother sees me off every single day and gives me a fruit to carry in my bag every single day. I don’t know, this is scary as hell but what isn’t right? I don’t know honestly. This has not appeared magically though, there were too many bad nights and too many scared phone calls to friends at 3 AM in between. It’s taken time to reach from there to here. I don’t believe most of it still. I have a tough time holding on to things that are good for me but this seems real. I hope it’s real.
you’re turning twenty,
Twenty like ugly days.
Twenty like brussel sprouts,
Twenty like job interviews and starchy suits.
Twenty like disappointment,
Twenty like take your pills.
Twenty like stretch marks and bad breakup sex,
Twenty like college essays.
Twenty like dying.
Twenty like empty wombs and emptier pockets,
Twenty like goodbye.
Twenty like crooked teeth.
Twenty like no, thank you.
Twenty like yes, more please. Twenty | d.a.s (via backshelfpoet)
Too many sad conversations happening. It’s almost been a year since that morning. That’s a long time, I guess. It’s still too real to be turned into poetry though. It’s all there, intact and awake.
