    "will i be dying of peace or dying of war? there’s a quiet war going on…"

    -

    an elder.

    i’m doing work, waiting at Firestone to get my car inspected and there’s an incredible unexpected conversation happening next to me between strangers - talking about power, society, the 1%, black panthers, how can we rise up and live authentically in a society that promotes certain values, school to prison pipeline. i’m learning a lot about how to create a social group with a person responsible for Arms.

    it’s super empowering and makes me feel powerful.

    What we can’t talk about controls us. If you want power over your demons, bring them out into the open and speak their names.

    what i knew: i have held a lot of grief in me.

    what i didn’t know: what exactly I was grieving for.

    what i just figured out: for the innocence and power that was taken away, for the fear i carried, for the triggers that overwhelmed me and spiraled, for the wholeness i didn’t feel.

    what i know now: jumping right into fear to actively heal is needed to navigate trauma. healing works. i see and feel my power and enough-ness. good things are happening this year.

    "When I finally decide
    To tell you
    Where I am from
    This information is a gift

    I share it because
    I do not want you
    To attribute a homeland
    That is not mine
    To my face, my skin, my family tree

    Do not mistake it
    For complicity
    It is never an obligation
    To bare my roots"

    "i don’t know what brings broken people together
    maybe damage seeks out damage
    the way stains on a mattress halo into one another
    the way stains on a mattress bleed into each other."

    "not queer like gay. queer like, escaping definition. queer like some sort of fluidity and limitlessness at once. queer like a freedom too strange to be conquered. queer like the fearlessness to imagine what love can look like…and pursue it."
