Girl talk is not about what we say to other girls
It is about what we say to ourselves
It is what happens when we see mostly mirrors
and stitch words into our skin
as though we were taught
right from the beginning
to wear the whispers of other people
On my way to meditation class I felt the urge to drive into a tree. On the way home I just wanted to drive.
Some days are like that. It’s like experiencing blindness with too much visual stimulation. Walking around as the ultimate contradiction.
Meditate. Strip it all away. Peel back all the pieces you thought really mattered and stop to feel the ground beneath your feet. Don’t just know that it’s there like some concept you can analyse.
At least once a day, find the truth behind all the ideas.
At least once a day, find some time to find you.
Breathing is easy
exhaling is hard
when the thought of taking the world in again
like a carousel going round and round
makes your head spin so violently
the ground becomes inevitable
-going through the motions
Quitting isn’t easy. Staying isn’t easy either.
One will make you happier tomorrow.
Trees do not symbolise peace
Planting them does
Eat oranges every day and glow. That is all.
Chocolate is not the answer. But not eating chocolate has nothing to do with the question.
Television is fun. But television is also a prison. Be careful how long you linger. For television was planted to grow walls.
Naked feet in cool grass will solve all your problems
I’ll remember how
I couldn’t stand your face
when you saw yourself
in every mirror
and sliver of glass
that crossed your way
–Me, Them, Everyone
