“i am your friend.
a soul for your soul.
a place for your life.
home.
know this.
sun or water.
here
or
away.
we are a lighthouse.
we leave.
and
we stay.”

—   nayyirah waheed, lighthouse (via calllunavulgaris)

Some of my favorite poems from Nayyirah Waheed’s Salt. The kindle edition currently on sale for $2.99 (as of the time this post has been written). The author is amazing. Some of her poems talk about racism and cultural appropriation. The book itself was a pretty quick read as well, perfect for reading on the bus or anywhere else.

“She asked, ‘you are in love, what does love look like?’ To which I replied, ‘like everything I’ve ever lost came back to me.’”

—    - Nayyirah Waheed (via natashaisintheforest)

“sometimes the night wakes in the
middle of me.
and i can do nothing
but
become the moon.”

“What I want is to open up. I want to know what’s inside me. I want everybody to open up. I’m like an imbecile with a can opener in his hand, wondering where to begin— to open up the earth. I know that underneath the mess everything is marvelous. I’m sure of it.”

“… We are multidimensional infinite consciousness incarnate in a physical body for a period of intense experience on the road of evolution … we don’t ‘die’ because we cannot die. Energy is consciousness and energy cannot be destroyed, only transformed into another expression of itself. When you realise that you are not your physical body, but the infinite, eternal consciousness giving life to that body, your vision of yourself and your potential is expanded beyond measure.”

“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”
