Recently I have been troubled with a lot of anxiety. Anxiety over the future, anxiety over my present circumstances, anxiety about the people around me, anxiety about who I am as an individual, and anxiety that simply comes from being overwhelmed. This anxiety has been very overbearing recently and causing me to ask a lot of questions. Whether I am asking if people truly love me, or asking if...
“Mam, with all do respect. Keep walking.” There is dust clogging up their souls and Not because they have inhaled the earth, No. They were dirty once. Dirty still. They see the particles flying through space Illuminating light caresses their curves. They see, Yes. They have engulfed the earth. Dust chokes their lungs.

“For every band geek who picked up a guitar or drumsticks or a French horn instead of a bong, for every poet who picked up a pen instead of a gun and expressed their angers with ink and not blood, this one is for you” -Big Poppa E
Early Memory by January Gill o'neal
I remember picking up a fistful of sand, smooth crystals, like hourglass sand and throwing it into the eyes of a boy. Johnny or Danny or Kevin—he was not important. I was five and I knew he would cry.
