”It’s funny how i thought
I was good at hiding my
fellings, but then strangers
started asking me what was
wrong and why I looked so
tired and that’s when I
realized you didn’t care
enough to notice”
By: Simone // relhavant
So say goodbye to love
And hold your head up high
There’s no need to rush
We’re all just waiting, waiting to die
waiting... / city and colour
This is what it means to age gracefully…
God save the queen
I’m sick of the media telling us women can only be beautiful during a very tiny portion of their lives. Look at this amazing person, and tell me she hasn’t always been and remains to this day drop dead gorgeous.
Ladies, you’re always and forever beautiful. Remember that.
I’m not saying that beauty is the most important thing, I’m only saying your age will never steal it from you. So just keep rockin’ it.
I also really resent the implication that the only way to be beautiful at older ages is to not be visibly so old.
As if white hair and spots on your hands and face and wrinkles deep as canyons and rogue chin hairs and cataracts and lips puckered by age exclude you from being beautiful.
How to age gracefully: a guide
Since July 17th there has been five reported occurrences exemplifying the police and American justice system’s lack of reverence for Black life. These are the five stories that were able to attract at least minimal attention. Who knows what is going on out there covered up (like the Ferguson police is trying to do with Mike Brown’s murder), unrecorded, and unknown. In the past 23 days the police have perpetrated the humiliation, degradation, and murdering of Black dignity,souls, and people. Knowledge is power. Do not rely on mainstream media to give you the full/accurate story. They will always be complicit in the devaluing of Black life because Blackness has been criminalized in America. Please spread these stories and add any more that you know of under the hashtag #badges are the new hoods. We need to start documenting, and spreading information. They will try to silence us as they did to Ramsey Orta, and Alba Lekaj, the people who filmed the NYPD harasing and murdering Eric Garner. But united we can make a difference. Knowledge is power. Stay woke Black America, Stay woke.
