"little girl comes to you cautiously, gingerly; does she dare to
she comes on dark wings,
with pink ribbons
wanting pretty things,
and a place in your heart
she whispers and wants you to listen
she is fragile and strong
like a milkweed seed
looking for somewhere to land
if you nurture her,
she will grow
and bring you gifts of butterflies"

these are my tattoos, so far, lol...
left shoulder blade ~
this writing is in hebrew
it is Psalm 10:1 and says:
Why standest thou afar off, O LORD?
[why] hidest thou [thyself] in times of trouble?
the next tattoo is around my left wrist
is a crown of thorns with a cross at each end
with a tribal razor blade in the center inside:
below is art of tattoos...
could you hit me
just once, leave a mark
for the world to see
rather than fighting my mind
where no one can see inside
pain and agony
push me against the wall
make me fall, bleed
you invalidated me long ago
punch my clock
leave me to rot
confused by lies
i'd like to see you cry
innate emotional intelligence
you've broken my defense
i don't know what to believe
killing my confidence
constantly paying penance
stop being so emotional
grow a backbone
knock me out, cold
tired of the toll
nailed to the cross
you say you're the boss
carrying my weight
in an altered state
hit me, it's all good
leave me like you should
i won't beg for my life
at least then
i have a chance
leave me for dead
"Telling a person she shouldn't feel the way she does feel
is akin to telling water it shouldn't be wet,
grass it shouldn't be green, or rocks they shouldn't be hard.
Each person's feelings are real.
Whether we like or understand someone's feelings, they are still real.
Rejecting feelings is rejecting reality;
it is to fight nature and may be called a crime against nature,
"psychological murder" or "soul murder."
Considering that trying to fight feelings,
rather than accept them, is trying to fight all of nature,
you can see why it is so frustrating, draining and futile."
