People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.

“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy—all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
~ Cassandra Clare
I was lucky go catch Terisa Siagatonu throw it down with this beautiful poem on Saturday at Jean Melesaine’s Navigating Queer Waves show at Galería de la Raza I love how these badass poets of color are queerifying the world one poem at a time!
NOTE: This is only part of the poem.
“Terisa Tinei Siagatonu is a 1st/2nd generation spoken word artist and arts educator born and rooted in the Bay Area. Her emergence into the spoken word world as a queer Samoan womyn and activist has granted her opportunities to perform on stages ranging from San Francisco’s historical Herbst Theatre to the White House. The most memorable moment in her career was receiving President Obama’s Champion of Change Award for her activism as a Pacific Islander spoken word artist and arts activist in her community. Off stage, she is a first-year graduate student working toward her master’s degree in Marriage/Family Therapy at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.”
Playboy - accurately - identified when you should catcall someone. We’re proud.
My love is not a fix-all.
My love is not perfect.
My love is not a problem solver.
My love is not a need filler.
My love is not a vehicle.
My love cannot protect you from everything.
My love cannot provide you with everything.
My love is not God.
And I am not so arrogant to think so.
