"I’m bleeding, I’m not just making conversation."
Richard Siken, excerpt from “Wishbone”  (via larmoyante)

Allow Me To Shrink

I’ll shrink down, until I’m too small to see. I’ll take everything with me so I’m no longer in your way. In the way of a life you need to lead. The one I’ll only make into a mess. It’s okay to allow me to shrink. 

I can grow again, and I can grow back stronger. 

I just need to hide for a bit. I need the space to be invisible. I need to be small enough to move around all of the powerful things in my way. The things I can’t seem to set aside or forget. 

When I’m ready, I’ll grow again.

I’ll stand tall with my shoulders back and you’ll see me again. It’s better this way. If I’m too small to see, then you can’t watch. You won’t have to see how difficult it is. You can be at peace. 

Allow me to shrink, but please don’t step on me.

Last night, I was lucky enough to be invited to an event hosted at the UN. Emma Watson co-hosted the launch of He For She, and ambitious gender equality campaign hoping to educate and bring men in the the feminist movement as allies, and they are completely necessary to help make the change a lasting one. 

Emma, of course, was impeccable. Her speech shared her own experiences in this world of gender bias, and made her strongest point to date: feminism is not anti-men, and that the idea that it is needs to end, and end now. 

After the event, we were welcomed at the Peninsula Hotel, where I was lucky enough to not only meet Emma, but other dignitaries of the UN. Though everyone who attended definitely enjoyed the champagne, it was a special night, hopefully ushering in a very good things. 

I urge you to visit He For She, and sign up.

Even when we don’t talk, don’t worry.

I still hear you in all the songs.

They’re constantly playing in my head.
