20 Perks of Being a Poet

powerpoetry:

Taking on the “poet’s life” is not only exciting—it also boosts productivity! Here’s how (and why).

  1. Poets can have multiple moments of epiphany. Develop the ability to remember and capture an experience or a feeling to create something no one else would comprehend.
  2. You can work with a cat on…

"Call a boy a gentleman and watch his shoulders straighten. Call a girl a lady and watch her spirit turn graceful. Humanity was brought into existence by God speaking words into the void of the universe. We tend to become what we are called."

It amazes me how many arabic names like Aaliyah and Jamal, etc etc, are reduced to ‘ghetto’ names when given to black children

it’s not just arabic names

any set of names that became popular amongst black ppl thanks to being OWNED by a certain group are considered “ghetto”, including many Western European names and some Asian names
