Becoming 


It will hurt. 

It will be a burden. 

It will pain your bones to 

carry your thoughts 

-it will lessen 

You will endure 

You will survive 

Bent is not broken 

– It’s okay to have been numb 

But you’re alive 

And you’re fighting 

And you will

Become 

-y

Pray 

A loss in one part of the world is no smaller than a loss in any other. Every life snatched, is a loss. Every life taken, is an outrage. Every justification provided is a lie. 

Watching the news is so painful, but this is what is happening. This is the world we live  in. And not only is it tragic, but also frustrating to be unable to help in any way. 

Pray for London. Pray for Syria. Pray for the Rohinhya. For all those who are suffering in Somalia, Sudan, Nigeria… If you can do anything to help, anything to protect, please do. If you cannot, please pray. 

Love,

Fallen 

Some men do not carry your heart safely in their chest. They keep it in their pocket, shuffling their daily things around it. Sometimes they leave it lying somewhere. Other times, they forget and jam a pack and a lighter on top of it, and remember many cigarettes later. And you don’t care. Because no matter how bruised it gets, you’re happy knowing that they’re still there to carry it at all.
At least it hasn’t fallen out of their hands. Yet. 

Why Are Men Strong? 

Why are men strong?

Is it because they are providers

Hunters, gatherers

Or just poachers?

Is it because they can 

Stand up and hit us 

Because we lack the girth 

To deal the damage back

Because it’s easy to hurt

Someone who can’t attack 

You

Someone who will easily bend

To

Avoid the pain 

But some of us

Climb back

And then you feel like

You must crush us

Because men 

Men are strong 

And a woman who won’t listen can

Be showed, thoroughly 

That she is wrong 

A man who must rely on

The strength of his arms

To show a woman how strong he is

May not be meek

But the defeat is not for the beaten

Because he is already 

Weak
