Merry Christmas

i believe that everything happens for a reason. people change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right; you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

-Marilyn Monroe

twenty six letters


i’ve spent hours contemplating the words to say to you but no combination of twenty six different letters could ever accurately capture even a sliver of what this feeling is.

This poem, written by an African child was nominated for the Best Poem 2005.

when i born, i black; when I grow up, i black; when i go in sun, i black; when i scared, i black; when i sick, i black; and when i die, i still black. And you white fellows; when you born, you pink; when you grow up, you white; when you go in sun, you red; when you cold, you blue; when you scared, you yellow; when you sick, you green; when you die, you grey. And you call me coloured?

“you are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to; the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. you are what you take from these. you are the sounds of the ocean, the breath of fresh air; the brightest light and the darkest corner. you are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. you are every single day. so drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. let the words run through your veins and let the colours fill your mind.”
