She’s gonna learn that this life will hit you, hard, in the face, wait for you to get back up so it can kick you in the stomach. But getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air. There is hurt, here, that cannot be fixed by band-aids or poetry, so the first time she realizes that Wonder-woman isn’t coming, I’ll make sure she knows she doesn’t have to wear the cape all by herself. Because no matter how wide you stretch your fingers, your hands will always be too small to catch all the pain you want to heal. Believe me, I’ve tried.

It is much easier to look away and not have THAT kind of conversation. It is so difficult to stand against someone while in turn even if you don’t believe it your in action essentially becomes action. An action that continues to perpetuate myth.

“‘twas in that moment, when the sunset met her eyes I watched my heaven and earth collide; where in my arms love did provide, the brightest star of midnight skies. I live my dreams now everyday and love you more than words can say, with you there are no yesterdays, only tomorrows, come what may.”
