D. Antoinette Foy Quotes

Love is wind for the soul

I am in awe of flowers.
Not because of their colors,
but because even though they
have dirt in their roots,
they still grow.
They still bloom.

My heart's scripture tastes
foreign in the mouths of
cowards and on the tongues of
those who have never breathed in
the moon and breathed out the world.

I wear the universe backwards.
I imagine putting stars in my
coffee, and sugar in the sky.
I imagine going fishing in clouds,
and watching the sun hide
behind lakes. I'm too busy dancing
with my imagination to even tip toe
with reality for a second.

They say I'm going mad.
They're right.

The core of your
true self
is never lost.
Let go of all the
pretending and
the becoming
you've done just
to belong.
Curl up with your
rawness and come home.
You don't have to
find yourself;
you just have to
let yourself in.

The sky never falls with the rain.
It is never weighed down by all that
it carries. It takes all of its anchors
and turns them into stars.
Learn from this.

Take each day in your open palms and close your fists around it. This life is not done with you yet.

What is the finding of love,
but a voice answering a voice?

Life is so beautiful and so short
that anything that makes me feel
less than too much is nothing at all.

Your flesh is not a reflection of your soul. So when you look in the mirror, remember that your light outshines your flaws.

Don't be afraid to be afraid.
Have fear, and then conquer the
shit out of it.

I want to celebrate the sadness that makes you feel everything so deeply.
I want to throw a party for the wounds that make you so unabashedly human.

There are no lungs like the ones that breathe poetry.
