Orlando: One Year Later

One year ago today

There was an attack

On the lives of many

And the hearts of more

One year ago today

I did not cry

Not for lack of caring

But for ignorance

One year ago today

There was an attack

On the queer community

And the latinx community

One year ago today

I did not cry

Not for lack of care

But for lack of reality

Today I look back

On the attack

To see the terrible truth

Of this day in history

Today I look back

And cry

For those lost

But also for myself

Six months ago

I decided to listen to Hamilton

And to watch the Tony’s to hear

Love is love

Six months ago

I watch every video i can find

Not only to learn

But to feel

One year ago today

There was an attack

On the lives of many

And the hearts of all

Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love

cannot  be killed or swept aside…

now fill the world with music

love

and pride

-Lin-Manuel Miranda

No Words

This is my personal response/rant to the bombing in Manchester.  For anyone who doesn’t know an Ariana Grande concert was bombed by an ISIS suicide bomber.  Twenty-two people died and 59 were injured and some people are still missing most of them children.  (sorry I’m late, I was away from my computer)

This is just another, another attack, another political statement, another religious statement.  Except its not, its an attack on innocent people, mostly children, who were at a concert.  Concerts are supposed to be fun and safe for everyone there; the staff, performers, and concert-goers.  This kind of tragedy should not be “normal” but rather as shocking and horrible, because it is.  These attacks should not be normalized they should not be used as fear tactics but should not happen at all.

The Mirror

If the eyes are the window to the soul

Then the only time we truly see ourselves

Is when we look in the mirror

And when I look in the mirror

I see you

And you

And everyone that has been

Remembered and will always be

And has an impact on my life

So that all of my friends

And everyone who sees this

Is there,

Wether or not

I know who you are

Or if I just am aware of your existence

Wether or not your picture is there

I see myself

Letter to the Administration

I wrote this a while ago but it seems appropriate with all of the healthcare, lets call it drama going on, as well as the genocide in Chechnya.

To you

you and your ignorance

ignorance that kills

kills me

me the one

one you claim

claim to know

know enough to represent

represent by destroying

destroying  us

us the ones that count

count on you

you the one

one that enough

enough of us liked

liked enough to choose

choose to say

say I don’t exist

exist to you

you the one

who is ignorance

ignorance that kills

kills me

me and all

all who die

so much stuff

So its been a while since I posted because I’ve been super busy.  First of all I had another anxiety attack (ugh) because I had to present a monologue from Romeo and Juliet in English and I just got super stressed.  But other then that fun surprise I’ve had a great few weeks.  First of all I GOT TO SEE FUCKING HAMILTON OMG MY LIFE IS COMPLETE!!!! Sorry but it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!  My parents surprised me in the morning and just said we’re going to New York today and I’m like ummm why (omgomgimmaseehamilton)  and my dad just goes we’re going to see hamil-AHHHHHHYAAASSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Then it was spring break 2 (cause I’m spoiled) and we went to Florida and that was fun.  I also started to go to therapy a few weeks ago for my anxiety so ill let you know how that’s going later. Then this week i was super busy because i have a dance recital tomorrow and was sick for a while and have exams soon.

Anyway ill post again soon

Wow

I asked my mom to take me to the Connor Franta Note to Self Tour and she said she would but then saw that she can’t because she will be away for work.  Naturally I asked my dad if he would take me and he starts doing research and finds out that Connor is gay.  Now I (obviously) knew this and had no problem with it but as soon as he sees this he starts saying that of the possible 800 people there that 700 of them will be gay boys and I would be the only girl there.  Then he started saying that he was just trying to sell a “gay book” like seriously wtf dude?!? Anyway I’m just super pissed right now but here’s my poem:

He did not write his story

For you to judge

and call fake

Even if it is a “gay book”

I want to read it

not only because I can relate to his story

But because I look up to him

as a person

Feminism

Feminism: the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.

Not: the advocacy of women’s rights on the basis of the being better than may.

Not: taking away mens rights on the basis of the equality of the sexes.

I am feminist

but

Most feminists do it wrong

Because more rights for me does not mean less for you

It should not be:

If I have to keep a baby then you can’t leave

It should be:

If you can leave then I should not have to keep the baby

It should not be:

If I get paid less then so should you

It should be:

If you get paid more then so should I

This is not a you problem

It is a me problem

 Feminism is if you can

Not

If I can’t than neither can you

So I watch buzzfeed and go on tumblr a lot and something I have noticed is that people always say I’d be fine if men had to do ____ too which is not feminism.
