when intellectual lets go of arrogant
when wise departs from woo
when kind escapes from saccharine
hilarious outshines sarcastic
when strong releases competitive
when patient refuses resigned
when humble surpasses self-doubting
energetic shakes off thoughtless
focused burns up oblivious
meticulous says no to blinkered
when black lays aside authentic
when white disavows both guilty and entitled
when feminine outgrows beautiful
when loving unseats jealous
when good sees itself in bad
and doesn’t mind
Excellence- I am appreciating you.
hi katie. i really like this. also, i’m moving to oakland in about two weeks… :O
exquisite wisdom!! fantastic, katie
saving for as close to forever as i can possibly manage.
friending with you for as close to forever…
it’s been a while since i’ve dropped by your blog — too long — but i am loving, loving this one…. with gratitude for your liberated soul, katie!
thank you, maia! your warmth is always a gift — shines right through the interwebs. i’m so scattered with the blogging and blog reading these days… time to get some inspiration, and LLP is a fine place to start. :)
