Gonna print this out and stick it on my mirror. Keep that shit in check.
Or that one is “GIVING” a voice to a marginalized person. Which is very problematic as well. Having a voice is different to not being heard.
And always remember that our ‘voices’ are not always spoken word, there are many ways to communicate and they should all be respected
One of my all time favorite poems.
Suheir Hammad - We Spent the 4th of July in Bed
Gemini: This week, feel the world you move through speeding up, and feel yourself speeding up in it. Even if you don’t yet know where you’re going, let yourself pick up speed. As you move through your days, let the energy of the sun and the sky and the street build up inside of you; let it keep you going. Keep moving this week, even if you’re not sure where, even if you’re not sure why, even if you don’t think you’re ready to arrive. Watch thunderstorms this week, watch the tides. Trust that you’re where you should be. —Madame Clairevoyant
