It’s been a long day…


Put some honey and sea water by your bed.

acknowledge that your being needs sweetness and cleansing.

that it is sore.

that you are soft.

— Nayyirah Waheed, “orishas” in “Nejma

Choose That


do not choose the lesser life.
do you hear me.
do you hear me.
choose the life that is.
the life that is seducing your lungs.
that is dripping down your chin.

— Nayyirah Waheed, Nejma
