Today I had to sit next to a hispanic family on the plane and the younger daughter looks at the mom and goes “Ew we have to sit next to a white girl” and my mom sits in the seat across from me and I start speaking to my mom in spanish and they stopped talking shit the whole trip.
we the people of this lovely little town send our thanks daily to the icons in their soft meat crowns and see none hear none lest the secret police strike us down and goodness isn’t the moon beautiful and goodness isn’t the moon beautiful
the sunsets echoes over hills of brush and sand as children frolic across the vastness of the scrublands and the floating lights drive responsibly so they must be our friends and goodness isn’t the moon beautiful and goodness isn’t the moon beautiful
voices in lane five cry out for war you shouldn’t talk to telly anymore and we have a dog park, but it’s not for dogs so what’s it for and goodness isn’t the void beautiful and goodness isn’t the void beautiful and goodness isn’t the void beautiful
we the people of this lovely little town wish to someday achieve the rank of eternal scout look to the sky to find what everyone’s screaming about helicopter blades and demonic weeping seem to drown them out but through the chaos all we really want is to shout goodness isn’t the moon beautiful
i went to school with a pair of identical twins and one time one of them was like “i’m so hot, i’d fuck me” and he turned to wink suggestively at his brother who just batted his eyelashes and blew a kiss at him
I’m laughing because I’ve seen this post at least four times on my dash today and every single one had a different picture of the hitachiin twins
When you are 13 years old,
the heat will be turned up too high
and the stars will not be in your favor.
You will hide behind a bookcase
with your family and everything left behind.
You will pour an ocean into a diary.
When they find you, you will be nothing
but a spark above a burning bush,
still, tell them Despite everything, I really believe people are good at heart.
When you are 14,
a voice will call you to greatness.
When the doubters call you crazy, do not listen.
They don’t know the sound
of their own God’s whisper. Use your armor,
use your sword, use your two good hands.
Do not let their doubting
drown out the sound of your own heartbeat.
You are the Maid of Untamed Patriotism.
Born to lead armies into victory and unite a nation
like a broken heart.
When you are 15, you will be punished
for learning too proudly. A man
will climb onto your school bus and insist
your sisters name you enemy.
When you do not hide,
he will point his gun at your temple
and fire three times. Three years later,
in an ocean of words, with no apologies,
you will stand before the leaders of the world
and tell them your country is burning.
When you are 16 years old,
you will invent science fiction.
The story of a man named Frankenstein
and his creation. Soon after you will learn
that little girls with big ideas are more terrifying
than monsters, but don’t worry.
You will be remembered long after
they have put down their torches.
When you are 17 years old,
you will strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig
one right after the other.
Men will be afraid of the lightening
in your fingertips. A few days later
you will be fired from the major leagues
because “Girls are too delicate to play baseball”
You will turn 18 with a baby on your back
leading Lewis and Clark
across North America.
You will turn 18
and become queen of the Nile.
You will turn 18
and bring justice to journalism.
You are now 18, standing on the precipice,
trembling before your own greatness.
This is your call to leap.
There will always being those
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don’t see the part of you that smolders.
Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound
of your own heartbeat.
You are the first drop of a hurricane.
Your bravery builds beyond you. You are needed
by all the little girls still living in secret,
writing oceans made of monsters and
throwing like lightening.
You don’t need to grow up to find greatness.
You are stronger than the world has ever believed you to be.
The world laid out before you to set on fire.
All you have to do
