"If I could give you only one advice, I would say: Don’t identify with anything. Be completely empty—no one. Be nobody and see if you lose anything but delusion."

"Anytime you’re gonna grow, you’re gonna lose something. You’re losing what you’re hanging onto to keep safe. You’re losing habits that you’re comfortable with, you’re losing familiarity. That’s a big one, when you begin to move into the unfamiliar."

"As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live."

-Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I am nobody’s lover
I am nobody’s friend
I am just a daughter of the earth.
Fashioned out of clay and the breath of God, reconstructing my mothers womb from memory.
She shows me where I was born and tells me to burrow 6ft into her so I can finally rest."

-Key Ballah

"We are so used
to the idea of a woman
hating herself
that the thought
of self love and confidence
is repulsive."

-Michelle K., What Do You Really Mean When You Call Her a Bitch? (via michellekpoems)

"For the record, I honestly don’t give a fuck how much cock you suck. Suck a thousand cocks. Suck a million cocks. There’s no such thing as a slut. That’s just a lie they told you born out of male anxiety. Anxiety about adultery and misattributed paternity.

Sex isn’t sinful either, though you can trace a lot of sexual repression and misogyny back to the Abrahamic religions. Before Emperor Constantine tried to replace the pagan religions with Christianity, they used to have sex in church. Sacred prostitution. Happened a lot in Mesopotamia, for example. And the Mesopotamians weren’t stupid either. They invented the fucking wheel.

It’s your body to do with as you please. If anyone tries to dictate a dick limit to you, they’re trying to take ownership of your body. And that’s slavery. If they call you a slut, that’s slavery. And I refuse it. Suck an infinite number of cocks for all I care. Just enjoy it."

"Some women choose to follow men, and some women choose to follow their dreams. If you’re wondering which way to go, remember that your career will never wake up and tell you that it doesn’t love you anymore."

"Before I am your daughter,
your sister,
your aunt, niece, or cousin,
I am my own person,
and I will not set fire to myself
to keep you warm."

-Things To Remember

"I’m always soft for you, that’s the problem. You could come knocking on my door five years from now and I would open my arms wider and say ‘come here, it’s been too long, it felt like home with you."

-E jes’, jebi ga.
