things my mother taught me:
my skin is winterkin and my blood is thick with hard-earned brilliance; my bones are diamonds trapped in human form and my heritage whispers to me every night when the sky turns graphite gray.
the things she failed to tell me:
your throat will clog with your own darkness and you will choke on your own power and you will die at the hand of a sunlit goddess the shape of your heart. she carries your death tucked beneath her blouse and that will be the only time you will allow someone to hold your life in their hands. and you will give it to her willingly just like everything else; just like the moon eventually steps aside to let the sun shine. her light will stay with you until the very end and you will thank her with blood-stained lips for she will teach you the meaning of true love, how it claws and rips at you like a hawk digging into the soft flesh of your galloping heart. love, my mother failed to tell me, is warm fingers and liquid sunlight; it’s stubborn fists and naked cheeks and hair the color of snow and tears.
too bad, i think, that it’s just one dying breath in the space of eternity.

OMG, WHY DO YOU SAY ISLAM IS A VIOLENT RELIGION WHEN CHRISTIANITY HAS BEEN VIOLENT TOO!?
Christianity does have blood on its hands; however, it has been shown to be able to adapt with Western Society to where we rarely hear of terrorists performing attacks onto others in the name of Christianity. Many terrorist attacks in recent years have been associated with Islam. That's why I tolerate Christianity more than Islam.
YOU ISLAMOPHOBIC BIGOT! FUCKING DIE WHY DON'T YOU!!!1!1!1!!1!!
Today for the #visionseeker2017 challenge, we focused on the influences those closest to us have on us.
My Virgo father shows up as the Hermit. My Taurus mother shows up as the Knight of Pentacles. Funny how they face away from each other, with the Knight literally riding away from the Hermit.
It’s also funny that my brother shows up as the Strength card. He’s totally one of my rocks and is capable of more than he realizes. We both had to learn to embody strength with the upbringing we endured.
The bf is Three of Wands and @homeland-snooping is the Hanged Man. Still working through the bf’s card and won’t be posting details here, but homeland totally has been the person to challenge my perceptions and help me see the beauty in life. It’s those artists’ eyes, man. ❤
