+ sometimes, i write. +

I'm getting better at knowing what I need, and even better at seeing my flaws. It's amazing how honest writing forces you to be.

Someone stop her
the girl
with all the beautiful things
slow
slow her down
she enjoys
only
the finding and
not
the having
someone stop her
teach
her to see what
she has
already found
teach her
to enjoy it a little
longer
show
her she has found
enough
she has enough
someone


stop her





p.s. new self-portraits here.

Yes, I agree. Writing makes you brutally honest sometimes. It's hard for me to look at myself that closely.

This is absolutely genius. I'm terrible at tracking my money in December, but Mint has completely changed my life.
