Room for the Indignity of Many Aspirations

Rhythmic and rhyming rants of a rambunctious Rebekah.

it would be so easy
to break that razor open
and remove a blade
and trace
the vertical lines
of your veins
but your father
is downstairs
in his easy chair
drinking a beer
after working all day
for the family he loves
and it would matter
to him.

it wouldn’t take much thought
at all
to throw a rope
around the rafters
of the barn out back
and slip inside
but your baby brother
is planning a game
for you both to play
when you come back home
and it would matter
to him.

it wouldn’t be much trouble at all
to load the gun
in the back of your parent’s closet
and hold it to your forehead
and pull
but your teacher is hanging up the painting
you did
she’s so proud of you
and it would matter
to her.

it would be so easy to chase that bottle
of pills
with a bottle
of wine
but i’m here
alone in bed
thinking of you
and that joke you made that one time
and the parts of your face
that crease
when you smile
and it’s been a while
but it would matter
to me.

Someone out there
is holding you close
to the spot
in their heart
that they don’t show off
and you matter
to them.

you are made up of matter (Megan Grandolfi)

crutal:

friendly reminder that since it’s getting hot out, people of all sizes and genders can wear whatever they want to keep themselves cool and comfortable, and you are, under no circumstances, allowed to shame them or sexualize them for it.

I find these striking.

why are women’s bodies so sexualized that they can’t even FEED A CHILD

breastfeeding is so unnecessarily stigmatized. imagine that with twins.

it’s one thing if an individual is more comfortable in private like that but it should never be expected for bf mom’s to go hide when a baby needs to eat which is only all the damn time

because it helps to remember this every now and then.

Also did anybody else notice that they removed the “Elton John’s AIDS foundation” logo from Miley’s picture? Fuckin’ agendas everywhere….

I literally threw a mini fit

The fact that they even touched up the woman in the BACKGROUND of the Selena Gomez pic is crazy.

I’ve said this every time it comes on my dash but please also notice that a lot of the women get photoshopped lighter.

And that´s the reason why nobody should try to be that thin, because that thin doesn´t exist in reality.

THIS IS SO SATISFYING TO LOOK AT I LITERALLY STARED AT THIS FOR LIKE 12 MINUTEs

why did they feel the need to take away miley’s arm

but really

When I was in the hospital
I was roomed with a schizophrenic
And she was the most gentle person I have ever met
There was a boy with a long deep slit across his neck
Who told very funny jokes
A girl who never spoke a word
Would draw the most beautiful pictures
The boy who shook with anxiety
Could hold the most intelligent conversations
Even the girl who screamed in her sleep and picked at her skin
Had a heart the size of the ocean
We are not who you think we are
