"When I first met you, I felt a kind of contradiction in you. You’re seeking something, but at the same time, you are running away for all you’re worth."
Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore (via bookmania)

"And you tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more. Tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake… You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. And if he wants to leave, then let him leave. You are terrifying, and strange, and beautiful. Something not everyone knows how to love."
Warsan Shire, For Women Who Are Difficult To Love (via hello-lolo)

"I watched a girl in a sundress kiss another girl on a park bench, and just as the sunlight spilled perfectly onto both of their hair, I thought to myself: ‘How bravely beautiful it is, that sometimes, the sea wants the city, even when it has been told its entire life it was meant for the shore.’"

Christopher Poindexter (via steftastic)

I absolutely love this with every ounce of my being.

She lives on a glass mountain
She sleeps in a fishbowl
She’s wrapped in Saran Wrap
She’s silent under her bell jar.
She’s locked in her tower of glass.

She’s Queen of the Ice Queens.
She feels none of her feelings.
She acts none of her actions.
She speaks none of her insights.
She hears only the crash
of her own cold pulse
and the words: it’s getting worse
and worse
and worse.

"The Ice Queen," by Judy Grahn

AMRITA PRITAM (1919 - 2005) 

A literary legend of Punjab, Amrita Pritam is a true BROWNGIRL inspiration. The great writer produced over 100 books of poems, essays, novels, folk songs and biographies across a career spanning six decades. 

Loved on both sides of the India-Pakistan border, one of her most famous poems was ‘Ajj Aakhan Waris Shah Nu - Today I invoke Waris Shah’ about the anguish she felt for the violence and trauma during the Partition of 1947. 

She became one of the most important voices for Punjabi women and received a number of the highest national awards for her incredible works. 

ਅੱਜ ਆਖਾਂ ਵਾਰਸ ਸ਼ਾਹ ਨੂੰ ਕਿਤੋਂ ਕਬਰਾਂ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਬੋਲ। 
ਤੇ ਅੱਜ ਕਿਤਾਬੇ ਇਸ਼ਕ ਦਾ ਕੋਈ ਅਗਲਾ ਵਰਕਾ ਫੋਲ। 
ਇਕ ਰੋਈ ਸੀ ਧੀ ਪੰਜਾਬ ਦੀ ਤੂ ਲਿਖ ਲਿਖ ਮਾਰੇ ਵੈਣ 
ਅਜ ਲੱਖਾਂ ਧੀਆਂ ਰੌਂਦੀਆਂ ਤੈਨੂ ਵਾਰਸਸ਼ਾਹ ਨੂੰ ਕਹਿਣ: 
ਵੇ ਦਰਦਮੰਦਾਂ ਦਿਆ ਦਰਦੀਆ ਉੱਠ ਤੱਕ ਆਪਣਾ ਪੰਜਾਬ। 
ਅਜ ਬੇਲੇ ਲਾਸ਼ਾਂ ਵਿਛੀਆਂ ਤੇ ਲਹੂ ਦੀ ਭਰੀ ਚਨਾਬ 

Today, I call Waris Shah, “Speak from your grave” And turn, today, the book of love’s next affectionate page Once, a daughter of Punjab cried and you wrote a wailing saga Today, a million daughters, cry to you, Waris Shah Rise! O’ narrator of the grieving; rise! look at your Punjab Today, fields are lined with corpses, and blood fills the Chenab.
