We Are All In The Gutter
but some of us are looking at the stars
I search for light, all the while craving the darkness. My eyes seek the flash of illumination, whereas my lids weight to close the curtains on tired consciousness. My flame can burn hot and fierce, but it flickers. Expect anything, but not everything.

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, ‘You can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise you will threaten the man.’ Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors – not for jobs or for accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.

“Evil can hide behind any mask, whether it be grotesque or beautiful. Sometimes, it is very hard to guess whom is pure out of the corrupt; it’s kind of like a dance, trying to see through the murks and shadows of the lies and the truths. But at the end of the day, the answer is not so simple. Beauty can be found in the most inhumane of minds, where sickness can grow in holy grounds.”
