those girls with their
wild souls and,
getting their dresses caught on
tree brances and hearts
wreaking havoc on those who’ve wronged them,
bottles of thorns and vinegar.
stars strewn through their hair
constellations resting on their skin
crimson lips and,
rotting from the inside out
but flowers sprouting in their steps
tucking stones in their pockets for safekeeping,
like they tuck away secrets
whispering only to the trees
the wind sighing it’s reply back
REBLOGGED THIS ONE BEFORE BUT I DONT EVEN FUCKING CARE
never going to be over the fact that Arthur and Molly Weasley had seven children of their own, and hardly enough money or space to make due, yet they never thought twice about having an extra space at the table or making one more sweater at Christmas for the people who came into their family by circumstance.
#people Harry should have seriously fucking considered naming his kids after
Identity involves entering a community to draw strength from that community and to give strength too.
I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.
My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.
My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.
She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.
I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.
That is how religion should be. For everyone.
This is such a beautiful message.
