abluesforbrklyn:

you are not less of a poet.

if you have to read from paper.
if you have to read from phone.
if you have to read from tablet.

you are not less of a poet.

if you have to remember to slow down.
if you have to rewrite your lines.
if you have to reuse old memories.

you are not less of a poet.

do not let anyone dictate how you write. how you express. how you connect.

it’s not about them.
you are the poet.
and nothing less.

when i find stretch marks on my thighs i make a point of smooching them because they’re just doing their best at keeping the all-powerful immortal Being within me from ripping my mortal shell asunder in a blaze of heavenly glory and eviscerating the cosmos in my divine wrath

If you take a young man and woman and they both tell a stranger that they work in the same restaurant, it’s very likely that they will assume that the woman is the waitress, and the young man a cook.

But I thought a woman’s place was in the kitchen? Not when she’s being paid for it. I can’t believe it took me this long to realize the implication of this. A woman’s place is one of servitude.

this fucking hit me like a fucking train

"The police can go to downtown Harlem and pick up a kid with a joint in the streets. But they can’t go into the elegant apartments and get a stockbroker who’s sniffing cocaine."

Noam Chomsky

I’ve seen more drugs behind the brick walls of my private college than I have ever even heard of back home in my hood.

(via newwavefeminism)

It’s a known fact that you will find more drugs,especially hard drugs, in the suburbs than in the hood

my mom taught me the therapeutic power of cleaning. open all the windows. throw out the old. wipe down the entire house. burn some incense. roast some coffee. then rest. that way the tears from last night don’t feel as heavy.

"As a writer of science fiction I was free to imagine new ways of thinking about people and power, free to maneuver my characters into situations that don’t exist…I’ve been told again and again that my characters aren’t "nice." I don’t doubt it. People who must violate their long-held beliefs are rarely pleasant. I don’t write about heroes; I write about people who survive and sometimes prevail."- Octavia Butler quoted in Mixon, “Futurist Woman”
