To The Love That Brings Peace

Not every love story is meant to be a fiery passion or an overwhelming sweetness

To The Love That Brings Peace

There is love that consumes your insides
It burns and hurts
Makes you understand you are alive
Because the pain and pleasure go hand in hand

There is love that is sweet
It offers no trouble
It craves attention and time
You give yourself to its beauty

Then there is the love
That makes you feel like you are at home
That makes you worry whether it is real or not
Because you do not see its expressions as strongly as the first two

Well, let me tell you
This last one might be the most precious of them all
The butterflies are replaced by the sensation of comfort
The burning of your heart is replaced with the peace of your mind

You find yourself trusting

You see yourself through the eyes of another
You learn how to love somebody else
And how to love yourself

You understand why love is something we all seek
When you look into their eyes and notice
The flame burning deep within
And the sweetness that overbears

You understand that your other half really is meant to complement you.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
