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

    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. :)
