I yearn for strong bonds
built over anything
There’s something serene
in having intimate moments like that.
Not to say sex isn’t amazing.
But just when you can have
that type of intimacy with someone,
even if it’s just for that time,
that feeling truly stays with you.
Sharing energy with another person,
whether platonic, romantic, or sexual;
the mere foundation of sharing that
with someone is euphoric to me."

annismezelsm asked: Do you make teething necklaces for infants???
I don’t but I can. That would be a fun project to take on!
I come here tonight and plead with you. Be proud of yourself and believe that you’re somebody. I said to a group last night, “Nobody else can do this for us.” No document can do this for us. No Lincolnian proclamation can do this for us; no Kennedysonian or Johnsonian civil rights bill can do this for us. If the negro is to be free he must move down into the inner resources of his own soul and sign, with a pen an ink of self-asserted manhood, his own Emancipation Proclamation. Don’t let anybody take your manhood. Be proud of our heritage; as somebody said earlier tonight, we don’t have anything to be ashamed of.
Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language.They made everything black, ugly and evil. Look in your dictionary and see the synonyms of the word “black.” It’s always something degrading and low and sinister. Look at the word, “white.” It’s always something pure, high. Well I want to get the language right tonight.
I want to get it so right that everybody here will cry out, “Yes I’m Black and I’m proud of it. I’m Black and beautiful.”
