“we teach girls to shrink themselves
to make themselves smaller
we say to girls
“you can have ambition
but not too much
you should aim to be successful
but not too successful
otherwise you will threaten the man”
because I am female
i am expected to aspire to marriage
i am expected to make my life choices
always keeping in mind that
marriage is the most important
now marriage can be a source of
joy and love and mutual support
but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage
and we don’t teach boys the same?
we raise girls to see each other as competitors
not for jobs or for accomplishments
which I think can be a good thing
but for the attention of men
we teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings
in the way that boys are
feminist: the person who believes in the social
political, and economic equality of the sexes”

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

only a nascent trying to harness huge fire
out on the beach in the darkness starting bonfire
so gorgeous, a man might cry
burning trees in the basement, start a cool fire
feel my heartbeat racing, baby you’re on fire
so gorgeous, a man might cry

back in paris you told me you were suicidal
it’s not a vacation if i lose you to the Eiffel
you’re gorgeous but you can’t fly
a hidden admirer sent me roses white as fire
we took our handfuls it was war, flower fighter

After all the time
After you
Had you seen me with someone new
Hanging so high for your return
But the stillness is a burn

Had I seen it in your eyes
There’d have been no try after try
Your leaving had no goodbye
Had I just seen one in your eyes

I can’t give it up
To someone elses touch
Because I care too much

Could you tell
I was left lost and lonely
Could you tell
Things ain’t worked out my way

Wish the best for you
Wish the best for me
Wished for infinity
If that ain’t me

Give it up
I can’t give it up

I can’t give it up
To someone elses touch
Because I care too much

Give it up
I can’t give it

 I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you
But I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
And I’ll only consider it as you played the hallelujah
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

If you’ve been made to serve the master you’d
Be frightened by the hokum and be frightened by the night
Could I’ve been made to serve the master
Well I’m never going to understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier that’s going down

Hold me in your everlasting arms

tonight you’re mine completely
you give your love so sweetly
tonight the light of love is in your eyes
will you love me tomorrow?

is this a lasting treasure
or just a moment’s pleasure?
can I believe the magic of your sighs?
will you still love me tomorrow?

tonight with words unspoken
and you say that I’m the only one, the only one, yeah
but will my heart be broken
when the night meets the morning star?

i’d like to know that your love
is love I can be sure of
so tell me now, cause I won’t ask again
will you still love me tomorrow?
will you still love me tomorrow?

so i’ve got a lady crush
and i can’t believe i have waited this long to tell you
not only is she incredibly beautiful still at 40
but is also a true rockstar
being in rehab in her 20s and dating brad pitt when he was 10yrs older
while managing to star in movies like
from dusk til dawn, natural born killlers, whats eating gilbert grape
old school, whip it and catch & release
she also is the front woman for the band juliette and the licks
and she totally kicks ass
