you are fireworks lit at sunrise
you are summer moonrise
i refuse to be shamed for having a body. i refuse to get embarrassed when a tampon falls out of my purse or spend a whole day anxious about if someones going to notice that i forgot to shave a patch of leg hair. i wasnt put on this earth to spend my time apologizing for my existence and i refuse to let anyone make me feel like i have to waste my energy on all that petty shit
Images of caskets that popped out of the saturated soil during the Flood of ‘94 still haunts many who went through the disaster two decades ago.
