make a decision.

"You're always one decision away from a completely different life." I saw this a while ago and it's been floating around my mind for a bit. And just thinking in context, I have a few friends going through some very personal but very familiar stuff, and I'm just struck by just how absolutely true this… Continue reading make a decision.

you see me. | a poem.

Sweet and scared, You see me. You recognize me. I don't intimidate you with my needs. You don't turn away from my pain. You embrace me. You look at me and you see me. You see all of me.

locked out of heaven.

all the single ladies.

Girls, girls, girls, girls, girls... Let's talk. I'm really afraid for girls these days. It scares me that I'm raising a daughter in this world.
