“the thing that no one tells you is
that love should have conditions.
the thing that no one tells you is
some people need to be given up on.
that love isn’t an all-access pass.
that it isn’t a get-out-of-jail-free-card.
you can have the best of me but
you can’t have all of me.
i’ve made this mistake before
and you cannot have all of me.
just because i love you
doesn’t mean you’re Superman.
when you leap tall buildings
in a single bound, you forget that
i’m waiting at home and this isn’t love
like the storybook. this isn’t love
like my mother said. what they forgot
to tell me is that love should have conditions.
that if there ever comes the day that you press
your fingers to my skin and it blossoms purple,
i should run. that if you ever open your mouth and
what escapes is as cold as snow swirling into a blizzard,
i should leave. i’ve watched the women
in my family love until they are broken,
until they are small, until
they are nearly dead and because of this,
there are conditions.
my mother told me the secret to love is that
at least one of us has to keep fighting for this love
and i promise you i will fight
until the end of me,
but there are conditions.” Fortesa Latifi - [un]conditional love

How To Teach Our Sons To Respect Our Daughters

Be intentional. Sound out the word reverence. Define it.
Teach him to stand in the middle of the word
while sustaining a vibration of love.
Hand over questions, even if your hands are shaking,
especially if your hands are shaking.
Even if the words tumbling off your tongue
break open on your lips, teach him
how to stitch them back together.

This will be an uphill battle.
Strengthen your legs.

Be prepared for the day
when you have to walk back down the mountain
for the umpteenth time to take him by the hand,
even when you had thought
he was just playing hide & seek with you
at the top, especially then.

Don’t lose hope. Don’t drag him back up
kicking & screaming. Take him by the hand
& draw him map of your steps. A map that he can hold
when your hand can’t be there.

Teach him that the word Yes doesn’t always mean Yes.

Sometimes it means I don’t want to be a cock tease.
Sometimes it means we fucked before so I guess this is just what you do, right?
Sometimes it means my father ignores me.
Sometimes it means I’ve had way too much to drink.
Sometimes it means I was drugged.

Don’t hide in a corner just because your cheeks
will turn pink elephant & stomp around the room.
Do it for the 11-year-old girl that was gang raped
in Cleveland, Texas. Do it for the girl in Steubenville,
do it for Sarah Butters. Do it for Jada, the 16-year old girl
that stood up in front of an entire nation & said,
Everybody has already seen my face & my body,
but that’s not what I am & who I am.

Teach him that she is the perfect illustration of why
there are laws in place to protect her canvas of a body.
Teach him to pick up the brush & honor her.
Teach him to paint over the splatters of red.
Teach him to calligraph the word Integrity
on the inside of her thighs.Teach him
phrases like, Your body is a sacred outfit.
You don’t have to carry around all that shame.

Teach him with love. Teach him with tears.
I don’t fuckin’ care how you do it but please,
please, teach him. He’s waiting for your instructions.

“If you’re feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares you directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand” Femme Fatale   (via seulray)

Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff

My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk. 

My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2

My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits. 
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving

Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s. 

As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!

But cannot pray.

Nobody gets offended,

God lives in my throat,
God chokes on my poetry,
God breaks on my smile.
