On Death & Living
Many of my mornings are spent telling myself that I’m going to die some time today or tomorrow. Now, some call it crazy, but for me, it helps me to take risks and see what’s important.

And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you...– Haruki Murakami (via anaestheticvoyager)
Maybe It's an Introvert Thing
This dude I went to high school with, who now goes to the same university as me also, just tried to get me to go to a party tonight. He begged and pleaded, but I had to keep telling him “That ain’t my thing”. He didn’t understand that going to parties doesn’t give me enjoyment. And if I don’t see going out as worth it, I won’t step out. On top of that next...
In school, we were only taught about Martin Luther King and Harriet Tubman. Not about Malcolm X, Sojourner Truth, Marcus Garvey or even Nat Turner. No talk about Black Native Americans. So much history is taught to us as children, but as blacks, no one has ever taught us where we come from and the truths of our past. So excuse the fuck out of me for wanting to educate myself and gain some...

What is sleep? That elusive distraction Said to be so great & vital That I miss out on the day’s beauty? It is only when the all falls silent And I sit in this Midwestern town I find myself in tune with the restless spirit of New York Only when the stars are flickering Can the truth of my path be revealed or the wisdom of the cosmos speak so clearly Only by way of moonlight ...
Men in fancy suits With white smiles And seemingly sincere hearts Sit in front of me shooting me a sale Men in fancy suits Send black men in fancy suits With rehearsed lines To sit in front of me and shoot me a sale Merrily greedy men Recruit naive children and hopeful graduates And give them rehearsed lines & briefcases To sit in front of me and shoot me a sale Conservative white...
Why is that you can only think of all the shit you need when you broke?
Run nigga nigga nigga run
Singled out by the deep roots of my skin The boys in the corner shoot jokes Loud enough for my ear One says “Know how a four wheeler starts?” My heart senses something before my mind does And they shoot “Like run nigga nigga nigga run nigga nigga nigga run…” Singled out by the roots of my skin I reach inside of my coat And those white boys got...

unfetteringlove: This law says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This doesn’t mean you give up the intention to create your desire. You give up your attachment to the result. This is a very powerful thing to do. The moment you relinquish…
I believe in anger Rage may blind your vision But it can also clear it Whereas your view may have been rosy before Once ignited with the flame of fury You can now see a shit show for what it really is In high definition

lilysofthefield: He went door to door, selling watches, sewn inside his trench coat. He’d say: I’ve got all the time you could possibly need, extending those moments you want to hold closer and remember longer, hours that contain the sun, minutes that contain your smile, seconds that contain your lover’s touch. He had a twinkle in his eye,
Diction of a Slice of Life: Small talk →
raytart: As a person who finds interest in only deeper subjects, I find it hard to make small talk. I get really paranoid because I would be thinking “Oh gosh, what do I say next?!” I realize that only INFPs would think this way. For everyone else it seems, it’s a natural thing to just talk. I guess the…

Hands without flesh reach for me The night is still with black silence My heart thumps in finality Anticipating my demise in violence
hotpervymess: Sometimes I wish I had nothing to lose. I’d nosedive straight toward love or death and not give a fuck.
