"I swear that I will not dishonor
my soul with hatred,
but offer myself humbly
as a guardian of nature,
as a healer of misery,
as a messenger of wonder,
as an architect of peace.
I will honor all life
—wherever and in whatever form
it may dwell—on Earth my home,
and in the mansions of the stars."

Diane Ackerman (via venuschild)

"I am not brave like in the movies.
My fight sings like surrender
but I swear if you look closely,
there are bullets in my teeth.
My fingers are shaking
but my feet won’t stop
dragging themselves forward
and it’s slow
but we’re moving.

I am not brave like in my dreams.
I haven’t yet learned to stand up tall
but if my spine is stacked
anything like my mother’s
then that day will come.

So maybe I am the trembling kind of brave.
Think leaves in autumn dancing on branches.
Think wind whistling between cracked ribs.
Think held breath passing a graveyard.
Think a hero’s heart.
Think a poet’s angst.
Think a father’s fear.

I am not brave like in books
but maybe bravery is
chattering teeth,
screaming heart,
staggered breath-
maybe it’s all of that
and putting one foot in front of the other anyway."

Fortesa Latifi - I am the trembling kind of brave
