I’m hurting.
I don’t want you to fix it,
I want you to 
feel 
it.

My friend’s eight year old daughter came up to us when we were talking the other day looking extremely upset and sad. Apparently someone had told her, “oh you’d be so pretty it only you lost all this baby fat.” First of all, she’s eight. She’s a healthy kid who is extremely intelligent and when shes around she brightens the whole room because she’s such a happy child. I wrote this poem for her. And for all little girls out there facing the “pretty” label and being told what they should be to fit that very small limited mould. Don’t worry about what they think you should be. Be whoever YOU want to be.

spring falls

this smoke gets me high
from the explosion when
our minds collide

this summer was cold
and when it rained
it poured

you were my shelter
when my world was a storm

you made me feel better
when it was cold you were my warmth

i found the answers to my prayers
in the silence
between your
heart beats

The day you left, I began reading space theories to cope.
