to new beginnings:
you can close this chapter
of your life and never look back
or you can flip through the pages, revisit old memories,
reflect on how different you once were.
that's the magic of
writing your own story–
you'll meet new characters,
travel to new places,
face new obstacles,
and the best part:
deciding how to overcome them
and then realizing
you can.

i’m afraid of getting older
scared i’ll never write anything
worth reading again
that i’ll disappoint the people
who are counting on me
that i’ll never learn how to be happy
that i’ll be broke again one day
that my parents will die
and i’ll be alone in the end
— Rupi Kaur, Home Body

[Text ID: Possible effects of stopping large doses of synthetic hormones without tapering off include mood swings, breakouts, intense cramping, bleeding, lethargy, elevated anxiety and depression, and a decrease in the body’s unusual ability to monitor needs such as hunger and exhaustion.

📖 Time is a Mother by Ocean Vuong
Review
A beautifully crafted elegy of grief and how we live with it. Ocean Vuong never misses. Each poem is real, sometimes painfully so. He weaves words together that are satisfying to say out loud.
If you liked any of his other writings (Night Sky With Exit Wounds; On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous) then you’ll love this one.
My favorite poems in this collection were “Rise & Shine” and “Not Even”.
