- there is nothing wrong with going through phases while you try and figure out who you are
- there is nothing wrong with being confused about who you are. at any point in your life
- there is nothing wrong with saying you were x identity a year ago and today saying you are something else.
it does not mean you lied
it does not mean you were doing it to be trendy
it means you changed
thats what people do over time: they change
and that’s ok
i’m happy i saw this

Selena’s microphone covered in her well known lipstick color. All her mics ended up looking like that after her concerts. This one is on display at the Selena Museum in Corpus Christi Texas and is from the infamous Last Concert.
omg this is perfect/amazing
They call us now.
Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings
and someone who knows my first name
calls and says in perfect Arabic
“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head
I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
They call us now to say
You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.
They think of it as some kind of war time courtesy.
It doesn’t matter that
there is nowhere to run to.
It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless
and mark you only for a life sentence
in this prison by the sea
and the alleyways are narrow
and there are more human lives
packed one against the other
more than any other place on earth
We aren’t trying to kill you.
It doesn’t matter that
you can’t call us back to tell us
the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
that there’s no one here
except you and your children
who were cheering for Argentina
sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
counting candles left in case the power goes out.
It doesn’t matter that you have children.
You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
Running Orders, Lena Khalaf Tuffaha
