I want a trouble-maker for a lover, blood spiller, blood drinker, a heart of flame, who quarrels with the sky and fights with fate, who burns like fire on the rushing sea.

Rumi (via petrichour)

It may be safer, warmer and more comfortable, always living on the inside looking out, but after a while, the sound of the rain is just not enough anymore; you forget how it feels. And though you may never forget who you are, if you stay away from the world too long, you are guaranteed to forget who you were meant to be. Without others you will lose yourself.

Eat what scares you. Devour the fear whole.
Let every bite nourish your soul,
And give you strength to live
Victoriously.

- J. Colón

An Ode to My Father

My father did not teach me to be a princess. Instead, he taught me to be an explorer.
A scientist.
A philosopher.

My dad never told me to act like a lady.
He told me to be Inquisitive. Silly.
Smart.

No. My Papi didn’t put me on a pretty pink pedestal, but he did show me how to reach for the stars.

He taught me to keep my feet on the ground.
To dream big and think bigger.
To search for magic hidden beneath the surface.

We’d spend hours digging for trilobites on the muddy banks of the Mississippi.
Searching for perfectly-smooth skipping rocks to save in our shallow pockets.
Unearthing fat, slimy worms to impale on shiny silver hooks.

No.

My father never told me I was his princess.
Instead, he gave me the world.

I imagined us bound
By tiny red strings
