we choose to stay numb because
we think it keeps us safe
but the most dangerous thing
we can do is forget how to feel

thank you for the scars
the right one will say
they’re beautiful

and then it all hit me: i had all these painful, scary, and depressing days to thank for the person i had become. if i hadn’t hit my proverbial rock bottom, i would not have been able to plant my roots and grow upward.

appearance and intelligence
are not codependent
they coexist
your appearance
does not define
your intelligence

demons try to control us
but out in the open
they’re nothing more
than whispers
of a painful past
you will be safe in the right hands

as women
we’ve grown deaf
to the whistles
and whispers
that come with
walking down the street
we’ve learned to keep
our heads down
growing small
into the shells
we never asked for
these habits leave scars
that will never heal
because we were born
into a world
where our bodies
do not belong
to us
these things happen to girls like you
this is a lie you have been told
he showed me a picture
of a beautiful girl
soft skin and lingerie
can you believe she’s a lawyer?
words that crack like a whip
every time i hear them
can you believe?
yes
of course i can
i can believe a woman
who has long hair
big eyes
breasts and hips
and dripping curves
is capable
of studying in school
reading a book
writing a thesis
arguing a point
winning a case
appearance and intelligence
are not codependent
they coexist
your appearance
does not define
your intelligence
your appearance
is simply the cover
to your inner memoir

the truth hurts because
we live in a world
so used to lies

using my pen as a north star of sorts, i was able to guide myself out of a deep depression.

bleed

i was born

with wide eyes

and a fragile heart

that never learned

to say no

i feel everything so deeply

like stones in my pockets

holding me under

to drown

as women

everyone thinks we’re fine

because makeup hides

the sleepless nights

and the tears we cry

sweetheart

honey

babygirl

cutie

these are not my name

and i am not yours

but you use intimate words

to give yourself a false sense

of dominance over me

the rose knows well
always picked first
yet never a chance

your past

is never truly

in the past

we’re only haunted by the things

we refuse to accept

we’re built to make mistakes

and also given the gift

to apologize
Jovana
Jovanahat Zitat gemachtvor 2 Monaten
there’s healing power

in a simple apology

but when egos

get in the way

some would rather

hurt the ones they love

than admit they’re

vulnerable
