from now on, when i have writer's block, i will not run around it. nor will i run away from it. instead, i will recognise it for what it is: an expectation. i will let my mind rest & it will create whatever it wants to, whenever it is ready. //

Today’s an editing and transcribing day for you. Can we all say, “laaaaammmme!” 🙋♀️
While I hammer away on this tedious matter, anyone else on this struggle march? Feel free to share in the comments below. I’ll send you a high five and encouragement! #tedious#edit
I’m so scared
that you’re going to leave…
I guess that’s how I know
that I love you.
and I guess that’s how I know
that you’ll go.
if you go anywhere,
take me with you.
“I’d go anywhere with you.” HT.🖤

After a long period of writer’s block, I was finally able to write something 🙌🏻
It’s a little bit longer than usual but I think it’s one of my favorite ones I’ve ever written.
If this world was going to take
so much from me,
then I was going to know
how to breathe in the salty air
that once plucked my thoughts away.
My body would be nothing less
than a vessel for every
woman who scorched the earth, yet was
told she shouldn’t burn.
And my lips would only be tainted
by the monsoons
once buried deep in my belly
where regrets and lost battles
brewed the storms our mothers promised.
Those same ones their mothers craved.
This uprising has been warm
since the poetry in my sisters’ eyes
was seen as nothing but white noise
and it will see mountains trembling
to the sound of “look at us now.”
And with feet marching
to the sound of thunder,
you will learn why man-made weapons
cannot silence the fervor of a storm
molded by your daughters’ hands.
Those same ones you never held.
and when I say beautiful I mean your imperfections. the light in your eyes. the sensitivity of your mind. your positive and negative thoughts. because although we don’t share them, we all have them (negative) at some point. the beauty of your tears. your scars. your always loving words. the laughter of your soul. the footprint of your heart. 🖤 you are beautiful just like this. without anyone else’s approval. nor even yours. embrace it ✨
