Jobs fill your pocket. Adventures fill your soul.

'We could be so beautiful,' I thought as I looked at you. A million future conversations, while laid in bed in our own little haven, flashed through my head in a minute. And I wanted to weep, because it felt like home so much. A home that I would always watch from afar. A home I could never have.
“The Observer”  (via thepassingdialogues)

In response to anyone who thinks they have an fierce inner black woman in them and is not in fact, a black woman

See the thing about that fire and that “fierceness” is that it’s born out of our oppression, out of always being told that we are ugly, that our bodies are too fat or too muscular, that we don’t have the right kind of hair — and having to deconstruct all those things and tell ourselves that we are beautiful even though society is telling us that we are not.  

That strength is born out of always having to defend ourselves against white supremacy and anti-black-woman-patriachy. From years of not seeing ourselves represented in anything aligned with beauty, of buying products that are made to make us look like not ourselves.

So there is no way you could have an inner black woman in you. You have not experienced our struggle, you don’t know it, you haven’t lived it, and you can’t imagine it. 

See, you can’t sit with us, because we haven’t been able to sit at your table since our existence in this country. And while we were being excluded from your table we made our own, and it is fabulous and fly. And of course you now want to try and have a seat at our table, take our table, use it and ignore all the labor that went into creating THAT table.

But nah, sorry boo boo.

You ain’t never going to be us, you can try to wear your hair like us, you can try to dance like us, talk like us, wish you were us, but know this —

When I saw this article from takepart  about Black &SexyTv I got really excited, because their show are the TRUTH! And I wish some of them would make it on tv. These show are everything B.E.T needs.

Black and Sexy TV was founded by four filmmakers—Numa Perrier, Dennis Dortch, Jeanine Daniels, and Brian Ali-Harding—in 2011 and takes its name from Dortch’s 2008 feature, A Good Day to Be Black and Sexy, which showed at the Sundance Film Festival. Though the channel began with just one program, it has grown to include six: The Couple, Hello Cupid, That Guy, Roomieloverfriends, The Number, andYellow. The series are each distinct but are grounded by a through line of authentic black experience, especially regarding love and sex.

Here’s a list of show from YouTube not all from Black&SexyTv you should check out when you got time.

I’ve been preachin to yall for the longest! Now, subscribe lol

At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.

People don’t know how much energy it takes to keep this shit together.

I miss my old life.

Being home is caging.

Untitled Song in Progress

Reckless and breathless
take my heart in your hands
it’s been broken before
it can take the demand

Are you the big bad?
Should I run and hide?
Cause I’ve got a dirty mind
you can live inside. 

The innocence is a ploy
I live free in my head
If you’d lived like I do
You’d quickly be dead

So why don’t you
lay down and shut up
cause I’m not afraid
If you wake up
and walk out
I’ll be more than okay.

If you want to go
go
don’t expect an
invite to stay
men are like sunsets
there’s one everyday

Reckless and breathless 
take my heart in your hands
it’s been broken before 
I know you’ll understand
