My dear, some people (yes, even if they bear the name family) will do nothing but try to ruin you,
and you deserve to take back with fire and blood what’s rightfully yours.
Or else they will keep destroying the garden of your heart that you painstakingly grew,
eating your own rage should not be yet another one of your daily chores.
Let no one tell you that girls can only be kind and courage is not angry nor shrewd
that girls can only be silently gentle and have no right to stand up for themselves and roar.
Nikita Gill, To The Cinderella Who Fought Back With Blood
Inktober 2017, 27/31: The Wolves and the Sheep
“WHY SHOULD there always be this fear and slaughter between us?” said the Wolves to the Sheep. “Those evil-disposed Dogs have much to answer for. They always bark whenever we approach you and attack us before we have done any harm. If you would only dismiss them from your heels, there might soon be treaties of peace and reconciliation between us.” The Sheep, poor silly creatures, were easily beguiled and dismissed the Dogs, whereupon the Wolves destroyed the unguarded flock at their own pleasure.
A foolish peace is more destructive than a bloody war. – Aesop’s Fables, translated by George Fyler Townsend
