To The Girl Who Feels Broken

Like a wild flower; she spent her days, allowing herself to grow, not many knew of her struggle, but eventually all; knew of her light.

Rewriting My Memory

Love is so short, forgetting is so long.
- Pablo Neruda

I am trying to remember you,
let you go,
the same time.

Your Story Matters

“Don’t google your name. Ever. 
Don’t “search” for yourself
on anything that glows in the dark.
Don’t let your beauty
be something anyone can turn off.
Don’t edit your ugly out of your bio.
Let your light come from the fire.
Let your pain be the spark,
but not the timber.
Remember, you didn’t come here
to write your heart out.
You came to write it in.” 
- Andrea Gibson
