give your daughters difficult names. give your daughters names that command the full use of tongue. my name makes you want to tell me the truth. my name doesn’t allow me to trust anyone that cannot pronounce it right.

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

daeizm:

I fell for dreamers that dreamt of worlds without me. That fall is so sweet until you hit the pavement all alone.

21/30 - NaPoWriMo - Untitled

21/30

it is when u realized that ur parents were
not perfect 
superhuman
or magical 
that u began to fear u’d become them 
but

it is when she learned 
that 
she 
was them 
indeed had morphed into 
a perfect blend of he and she 
2.0
that she realized 
that she in fact was
amazing.

(c)2014 Jamila J.
