    Do not treat your daughter how your mother treated you. Teach her that her body is not the enemy. It is a home for a soul and not what’s important. It will be a rotting corpse someday, but your mind is your own; you are part of a constellation contained in a body; this is not you. Teach her to be ...

    Think about what you’re surrounded by. Automatically you would think about all the positive influences in your life, right? Now think about everywhere that you’ve been today. How many of those places have been shaped- ever so originally, like a box? Where the concrete walls are flat; the floor, ...

    The first boy I kissed Had a crescent moon smile Always shining on his face. We were cast in the school play and His hand met mine behind the curtain. The moon was white and I kissed him Underneath a set of swings. I turned thirteen and thought His hands were too big. I looked up and th...

    Never judge a person by how they live their life. For they are different, well-rounded and shall be accepted by their peers. Judge not, my fellow friends. For in their minds are emotions and thoughts deeper than our own existence. That is why some of us are not famous or social. We are afraid of the...

    Dear little girl inside, everything is fine We got through all the pain and even got to keep our minds Sometimes we still get crazy, but not the way we used to When the love that you know now is nothing you were used to Sometimes you have to stop feeling sorry for yourself And love You, th...

    Somehow the nights are always the longest I can't look within myself without seeing you first I can't open up my wounds without worsening hurt I can't ever get the flowers if I don't pull them from dirt I feel you in my sheets See you in cracks as I get nearer to the do...

    Strange hands taking my wrist again Somehow I'm still alone Voices shaking my steps again I follow I'm a little bit on the edge Holed up and out of reach I can't hear much of what you said Come for me Don't let me tumble away Into the throws of the shadowy bay I clu...

    Ok, I get it. You know every popular song in America. You daydream about being Justin Timberlake’s mirror, and you cry every time you hear “When I Was Your Man.” But could you name the latest #1 in Sweden? Perhaps South Korea? No? Well, good. If you didn’t know it already existed, this s...

    In chapter three of Ayn Rand’s novelette, Anthem, Prometheus writes: “The secrets of the earth are not for all men to see, but only for those who will seek them.” The metaphor that Prometheus speaks of is meant to reveal that the earth’s boundaries are limitless, but it takes a curious per...

    Knees bent as you take your mark. You know that feeling when you forget and wash away and race across that finish line and the ribbon breaks. Then suddenly you come back to life. Grasping moments, grasping eyes, finally realizing that you made it. That is why I write....

    Curls falling around my face shield me from your eyes My cold unfeeling heart can’t thaw and my head begins to spin, trying to conjure up a way to forget you. Atlantis was built so Poseidon could show that his love was as vast as the ocean, a symbol of his devotion. My love for you was a pu...

    Annabelle doesn’t like the man with brown eyes, They are flat and the colour of the Earth, She does not want to settle for the Earth, She wants the stars, she wants to shine. Dainty fingers walk across her spine, Counting every bump of vertebrae, Whisperings, ghosts, This is not what she...

    stepped onto the tube as if I knew what I was doing. Breathed and looked around myself, smiled amongst the ruined sets of seats and frowning faces. Walked against the clatter and rattle, sat beside some guy. Sneaked a glance, saw splatter of ink on top of pocket. Sly- grinned and looked...
