    You do not get to tell darker skin people how to feel about colorism , like shut the fuck UP...not your place , not your struggle . You don’t get to be condescending because you think you know better ; trust me you don’t . No one needs to hear that nonsense .  Keep it to ya damn self and stop trying to exploit pain that ain’t yours ,  especially as a lighter person . You can hang that bullshit up

    Everyone says love hurts , but that is not true . Loneliness hurts , rejection hurts . Losing someone hurts . Envy hurts .

    10 Ways You Can Support Black Women ;
    1. Stop slandering our natural features. Stop with the dark skin jokes. Stop with the natural hair jokes. Stop dehumanizing black women for our features. Black women (especially young black girls) internalize these “jokes” and grow to sincerely hate their blackness. Cut it out. 2. Respect our choices. All of them. You don’t have to like it but you need to respect it. If we choose to wear our natural hair, respect it. If we choose to wear weave, respect it. Stop chastising us for the choices we

    I Don't ;
    I don’t allow people to treat me like I am disposable . I invest in the people I care about , and assume if a person isn’t willing to invest in me then they do not care about me . I deserve to be cared for and people who do not understand that do not deserve my time .

    I love the sun that touches my skin every morning that keeps me warm . I love listening to birds chirp...it’s like a music to my ear . The cold air that’s trying to embrace my entire body and trying to wake me up . I love the smell of the aroma of coffee that gives me this kind of feeling of a new day . I love watching the beauty of sunrise that gives hope and happiness . I love waking up every morning and see the beauty of the world . It’s like a new chance , a new hope , a better day than

    I’m not good at keeping in touch with my friends . They think I don’t care and I don’t think of them . They think i’m happy without them and I don’t need them . But that’s not true , they’re always in my mind and in my heart , I just stopped showing it to them . I used to be clingy and flood them with messages , but i’ve changed . I feel like i’ll just annoy them , and that’s why instead of starting a conversation , i’ll just wait for them to send me a message . I’ll never forget them , they’re

    To Bad ;
    We never made any kind of sense .. While you found hope in the soft light that came with new mornings , I found comfort in the black blanket that enveloped us all when the sun finally said goodbye . I adored my lavander tea , while you swore that without a cup of hazelnut coffee , there was no possible way you’d survive . The devilish smirk that always seemed to dance across your lips marked you as trouble , whilst my eyes that were slightly too round gave off an impression of false innocence

    It’s 2am and I don’t want small talk...I don’t want you to tell me something that every other girl you’ve been with knows .. I want you to speak of things that’ll make your brown eyes unable to meet my own , for fear that I’ll laugh at the words that’ll escape your lips . So tell me , tell me how you’re doing and don’t you dare respond with "fine." Tell me everything you’ve been keeping bottled up inside for far , far too long...tell me how you got the scar that runs down the length of your

    I prefer the early mornings & the late nights because it’s a natural human meditation where your passions , soul , and thoughts are open as well as your ego is dropped . It's in these moments you can empathize on these thoughts and feelings , because when the sun comes up so does your defense

    I'm the Worst ;
    I’m the worst person to love .. I’m clingy , needy , and I would annoy you most of the time . There are times when you feel like I don’t care , and darling , trust me it will break your heart . But then , there are also times when you feel like you’re the luckiest person in this world because I love you . When you don’t see me , my memory will keep hurting you like a ghost you couldn’t live without . The thought of me keeps disturbing you . I know it shouldn’t but it will . I’m the worst

    That's How You Keep Her ;
    Hug her when she cries . Hold her and bring her close to your chest and let her cry .  Don’t ask her what’s wrong or how she’s doing...just rub her back and mean it . Brush out the tips of her hair and let her cry everything out . Wipe the tears away from her face and soak them into your own shirt...she just wants you to take care of her when her emotions play with her again . She wants you to be that someone who’s willing to help her hold her pain up so she doesn’t get crushed...notbecause

    I look strong but I’m fragmented . I’m pieces left by people who left me . I am lips bruised by kisses turned into nightmare . I am arms sore from fighting for someone not worth fighting for . I am legs lumped from trying to escape the grasp of reality that some people just don’t care . I am eyes filled with endless sorrow for crying to those who don’t even miss me . I am hands tired of helping others carry themselves . I am a heart crushed and thrown away to a place where I couldn’t fix myself

    Unrequited Love ;
    People always talk about how wonderful it feels to be in love for the first time , how passionate , but innocent it is . They even talk about how horrible it feels when that love ends , and the painful first heartbreak . And they will remind you of how you’ll always love your first love . But people never talk about your first unrequited love .. How you love that person devastatingly that they make your world spin and your eyes light up , but they never return your feelings . They never

    Let me love her . I’m sure there are others , but let me love her . Sure , there could be others for her , but I don’t like to think about that . She is all I want . And I don’t even want her to love me back . I just want to love her . I can love her . I need to .  I have to , because she is me , and I am her , and we are one . We are one and the same . So let me love her because she deserves to be loved . And I’d like her to know it’s okay to love herself too.

    I guess I just never noticed how loud the sound of nothing could be . Or how cold an absence could feel . How hollow a body could seem . I guess you just don’t see how lonely it gets until you lose the company .

    I Don't Mind ;
    But you don’t understand .. It doesn’t matter that the living room is an absolute mess . Complete with the glass shards from your favorite mug , the flipped coffee table , ripped curtains , and torn pages of your , now lifeless journal . It doesn’t matter that you cause nothing but problems and worries . I don’t care if you’re bad and leave a flurry of tragedies wherever you go . There’s nothing I’d rather come home to than a mess I know is mine .

    This is getting repetitive , but I’ll say it again .. For the better . For the both of us . For old time’s sake . Here’s to the people we can’t love ,  the things we won’t do , and the promises we never keep . But who knows , maybe we’ll actually change this time around ..​

I really have been working on telling people how I really feel .  I'm working on myself...to become a better me . not letting people take advantage of me . becoming more social . focusing more on school so that I can be apart of the best of the best . not going for the guys who just want me for my body...going for the ones who want me for my
