POEMS, PICTURES & TUNES

we come spinning out of nothingness, scattering stars like dust...


-rumi

Hear no evil, and see no evil, abase not thyself, neither sigh and weep. Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee, and magnify not the faults of others that thine own faults may not appear great; and wish not the abasement of anyone, that thine own abasement be not exposed. Live then the days of thy life, that are less than a fleeting moment, with thy mind stainless, thy heart unsullied, thy thoughts pure, and thy nature sanctified, so that, free and content, thou mayest put away this mortal frame, and repair unto the mystic paradise and abide in the eternal kingdom for evermore.

—Bahá’u’lláh (via bahaifaithquotes)

Mum, dad, sister, twin sister, brother, me. My lovely fam.

I really really hate when people will refuse to even associate with other people because they’re black. Its not a life choice, its not a religion, its a shade of skin and genetic make up. Am I too dark to be your friend? Just half an ethnicity too much? My body too curvy, or my nose too big? Well, before you know it everyone in(at least) America will be mixed, or some variation of it. Your children will be dating mulattos and quadroons and you’re just going to be some ignorant idiot who can’t get with the times. Oh well.

Love Me

Heavy, my heart grows
Waiting
Anticipating
Your loves return
Unavoidable anguish
Reaches my soul
Permeating every fiber of my
Being
Bringing me closer
So much nearer
To waning away
Losing my faith in you
Each passing day
Losing my faith in you, it’s true
And I feel as though
I can’t live without you
But I’ll learn
I’ll move on
I’ll grow
I’ll love again
And breathe again, without you
But this pain, it burns
Reaching my core
My very soul
Because your heart, I know
I can’t control
If you loved me
For certain
I would know
I would have known
I should have known!
And again, I think
That you don’t love me
And I start to weep
As, into my heart, I let that sink

sarahoswinoswald asked: Posted on your grandma's caring bridge as "a caring stranger." I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers. If you ever need to talk or have questions about pancan feel free to message me! <3

I read your post and I want to thank you for your kind words and prayers! Very much appreciated :) I also want to say how sorry I am for the loss of your father.. That must have been very difficult. Again, thank you so much!

Pretty recently my grandmother was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer..  There are only 4 stages. I am still in shock. She looks and says she feels perfectly healthy, with the exception of the excruciating pain that she’s in. She’s one of my favorite people in this world.. Full of so much love. Prayers are needed!

For My Grandma:
I wanted to write a poem
Just for you
But I couldn’t figure out the words
My mind has been one big constant blur 
Since hearing the news
And I can’t seem to formulate my thoughts
Or even seem to say or choose
The right type of thing to say
Because there’s so much I need to say
So much I want to say
But no word 
No word ever
Could express you
My dear grandmother
No sentence 
Or clever string of words
Compressed together
Ever could
You’re just too great
Too lovely
Too kind
And I find it hard to match what you have offered this world 
With simple words written on paper from my little mind
I wish you strength though
So much strength
And the courage to fight
And that undying will to live
Because you have so much left to give
So much left to show this universe
You have to
You must
Because as selfish as this may sound
I’m not ready to let you go
So please use this opportunity to show this cancer what you’re made of
No matter the odds 
I believe you can do it
Just please pray to God
And promise to stay strong
There’s so much love and prayers and positivity 
Floating 
Moving
Soaring 
Towards your soul
Just please be brave 
And don’t let go
