Emotional wellbeing springs from catharsis and forgiveness,



By Genevieve Joy Breitbach

did you know

tears are made of d i ff'rent stuff

when sprung from love

or forged in hate


I love

the way a human leaves liquid stars

dangling on the rise of their cheekbone

a breath longer when they’re happy

melting the molecules

into their flesh

healing hearts

from the inside out

it’s the magic potion from our salted blood -

a relief, a joy or curtain of disappointment


grinds away the Past

& pushes the present into ...……


I love

the fresh spice of old wounds

thought lost,

when healing words are spoken, that tickle


then seal together into wholeness;

oysters enclosing a new pearl of wisdom

that can take a breath of

sea water,

sprouting a mermaid tail to

swim the endless sea

of human emotion

there are those who don’t believe

someone can ever heal

their past

d o n ’ t listen to

those fools

that would have you believe you are nothing but a

roughhewn clod of

fleshy earth.

You are fluctuating endlessly—

A swarm of

being, soul, and mind

that transforms your body, your heart--

that glove your soul wears to brush

the earth...

for what terrifies them

is that you








Pure energy molecules bouncing

off chandelier


teardrops of the world

around you.

Each breath of forgiveness

Makes you whole.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
