    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...

    I’ve always been the one writing for people. "I’m not into words," you said. “I love with actions. I need to feel and see.” But darling, everyone’s a poet. “Write about me,” I begged. So my body became your paper, your fingertips were the ink. You used your mouth to ...

    First: What is a Practical Atheist? A practical theist is somebody who says they believe in God, but doesn't really live like they are Christians. In a way, we are all practical atheists because Eve ate the apple. To a certain extent, Christianity stays faithful and caters to our needs, but ...
