Powerful Words

I'll be the first to admit I'm new to Instagram. And I'm really only on there for the photo filters and because my cousin Courtney says I need to be. I don't post many things myself and just learned about "stories" which are essentially video collages available for 24 hours only. 

Anyway Courtney added some people I needed to "follow" on Instagram, including poet Nayyirah Waheed. And this gal is talented. Sometimes I feel like she is talking to me. For example:

do not disrespect your heart. by hearing what it needs. and giving it the opposite. 

-OR-

some words build houses in your throat. and they live there. content and on fire.

Her words are so powerful in an understated sort of way. I really enjoy getting my daily fix of poetry. and hope you will too!
