The many methods of living in recovery

Everybody is
a mental health expert
everybody does
psychologist grade work
everybody can
tell you how to cure it
just listen to Demi Lovato
she’s got the answers
let’s learn them!
Relapse is bad
not a reality of recovery
relapse is irresponsible,
we all should’ve seen this coming
a huge step back in the rhetoric.
It’s not about the relapse but
what you do after it,
everybody falls
but can you pick up the pieces?
If Demi Lovato thinks
relapse is not okay
maybe she should rethink
Red Bull as a choice-mmkay?
Because energy drinks are bad
for individuals living with bipolar
they are akin to Meth when
symptoms begin to take over.
Everybody thinks
they are a role model
but relapse is a real thing
living in fear is hard to swallow
if it happens to you
you will still wake up tomorrow
recovery is what you do
even after you fall
strength is in the choice
to begin all over again
relapse is okay
as long as it’s not your end.



You took the time
to give your humble opinion
so here is mine:
didn’t really need that admission
you actually took the time
to admonish my decision
but you didn’t think I had the mind
to read the words you had written
if we’re splitting hairs
you didn’t say the exact words
but aren’t we in agreement that
one thing is one thing
when putting trans first?
Don’t really understand
why you took the time to send
that really interesting DM
but thank you for the poetry
you have inspired in me
and remember I never said
they weren’t also wrong.

Thank you

Thank you for the kind words
thank you for your voice
such a motivator
to move on with my choice
so happy you enjoy my writing
so happy to read your words
thank you from the bottom
of my heart and my verse.

Real Feminist History

Pennies not dollars

They will come
know they will
when you speak of ethics and will
they will try and take your voice
you have more then just one choice
never silence ethics or beliefs
the ones who abuse power
will sow what they reap
never allow for pennies to fall
luck for a movement
luck for them all
but leaders don’t act as they preach
subtle abuse and manipulative speech
blame the soldiers
blame the guns
don’t let the leaders take the brunt
of the blame for their actions
leaders often don’t like factions.
Just keep moving
never shut up
for ethics mean more
than just showing love
if leaders don’t bleed
their speech and language
you can be certain they aren’t
worth your patreon patronage.

anita sarkeesian

Flipping the script
a woman lacking integrity and wit
making the rest of us look like idiots
she’s a bully, manipulative feminist
using her gender to get out of it
this is a female who uses her tits
just a Katy Perry though much less famous…

Cherno Biko

What a lady
a real goddess
proving to the mass
she’s flawless
shining through
this white is right
breaking out of
Transcending all
your morality
just ignorant hypocrisy.
Cherno Biko
an idol queen
a perfect example
of a woman’s theme:
all snakes in the grass-
Biko takes
doesn’t ask-
he’s a rapist and a hack.
The devil in a dress
just a delusional
forcing transmen
to bare ‘her’ child?
Apologize as the victim
the hero of this movement
should be jailed
and left to ruin.

Jack knows how to write

Don’t take that money?
Don’t take that money?
My god Jack you took that money!
you must think that I’m a dummy
rhyming schemes from sad to mad
frame your lady like she ain’t bad
whip that cream but just admit:
you take that check
just like your chick.
Everybody pays for the train
they may not take credit cards
but damn your loves lame!
Lyrics like this have gotten you fame
that’s not a feat
just makes lies outta your game
another rich kid playing in dirt
trying to make his worthlessness work.
Don’t take that money
how about stop selling your lies
made yourselves prostitutes
now trying to rewrite.
You are not real
not the middle class
if you were you’d know the importance
of taking cash.

Piers Morgan tweets sense

Oh for goodness sake.
If you can’t stand the heat
of rigorous debate
over a contentious issue,
don’t take part.
You can all
spew rage at the fact
that I’ve dared
critise ‘Saint’ Obama
you just can’t
the facts.
So employers can now
order women not to wear headscarves
can’t ask them to wear heels?
I have to wear
make up,
suit & tie.
Female boss of UK
female boss of Scotland
female boss of Germany
visits the White House.
If more women had bothered
to vote for Hilary,
she would have won the presidency.
I don’t mind governments doing speedy U-turns
on bad policy ideas.
Better than enforcing them.
I’m offended you don’t know
it’s ‘you’re’.
I never block people for having
opposing views.
I block them for being
I love the USA.
I really missed
fish & chips (with mushy peas),
proper football
people laughing at my jokes.

Mental gymnastics

Compiled of March 16-17 tweets from: Professor Fleming @alwaystheself

I don’t think it ever makes sense
to tell women
to “just shut up” about our
experiences of gender.
But women must find a way to talk about our *own* subjective experiences…
which is why I often ask
*white* women to
position themselves as *white* women
so you can tell us about *white* womanhood.
The point is that
excluding *trans*
women from womanhood
(as Adichie did)
contributes to *trans*
women’s oppression
I’m making the assumption
that *cis* women can’t speak to
fully understand
*trans* experiences (plural)-
vice versa.
People who can’t admit that
*trans* women from “women”-
for *trans* women who seek to describe
what it means to be
I ask that you
*cis* women’s views and knowledge on the matter.
Understanding *trans* women as “women”
had required me
to rethink/relinquish
the basis upon which
I’ve understood and

That said,
marginalized folk
can and do
dominate folk
into silence.

Chained to the Benjamins


I am not your friend
just another fan to send
straight to a follow, straight to a like-
heart that picture-you want my next album-

Keep talking, talking, talking
repetition is the key
keep singing all those lyrics
that supposedly speak to me.
Keep talking, talking, talking
your morals come undone
sexy, flirty, fun
an open invite to be the one

One in a million you don’t know our names-
taking to politics to up your trashy game
a shameless plea-
love me, love me, love me
while you can’t even love yourself.
Preaching to a crowd-eating baby food out loud- pro ana all around.
Molest your sister write it down
get another book deal now.

Keep talking, talking, talking
repetition is the key
keep penning all your verses
a prose of lies-truth on its knees.
Keep talking, talking, talking
your morals come undone
sexy, flirty, fun
an open invite to succumb

Your siren song, siren song.
You got it wrong, you got it wrong.
Play along, play along,
million reasons to come undone
shake it off, shake it off, your just an artist off the cuff.
A fame monster, a fame whore, your lady gaga in a pink hat playing poor. I grew up without the upper east side, never knowing the difference between a diamond and a dive.

Keep singing, keep singing,
killing me softly
music is dead
and the truth is haunting.
Keep singing, keep singing,
the rich run this bitch
I’ll keep counting pennies while you keep marching for the pics.

Sexy, flirty, fun-empowerment for twits.
