I NEED THIS MORE THAN LIFE

Need.

It’s either first choice or no choice. You can’t have it all.

God I love this.

My mum wrote this on her wardrobe door in Bangladesh over ten years ago. The last time I was there was back in 2005 for my father’s funeral. I haven’t been back since.

Right now, my brother is in Bangladesh with my family and I’ll be joining them on the 7th. He sent me this photo of the wardrobe. Funny, it’s still there after all these years, unchanged, but life is nothing like how it was before.

I like to think
that your kisses
erase my sins,
an unorthodox baptism,
from your lips on
my skin.

currents swim
against our flesh,
the waves course along
the lines of my palms,
a long sighted prey, I resigned
my last shred of innocence
when our bodies shook.

I’m always missing you.. And it bloody hurts

" It’s the little things that speak the loudest; even more so in their absence. "

There is a saying. "blood is thicker than water". But this phrase is incorrect. The full saying is "the blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb." In other words, the pacts you made is stronger than whatever you're born into.

I’m a strong believer that family is who you make it. Being bound by blood does not mean anything to anyone who does not sanctify and honour it. Respect works both ways and age and relation do not mean that you lose respect for yourself in order to please others. Nor does it mean living life in a way that is not you because it may dishonour or upset their cultural views. Love is allowing someone to be exactly who they were born to be regardless of your own opinions. And for some, family means nothing more than control. The guilt that surrounds us when we ‘deviate’ from cultural norms and ideologies is nothing more than fear of their ignorance to embrace change and individuality. And one should not feel guilty about removing those who do not have their best interests on the basis that they share relations. Those that genuinely love, care and respect you are those worth keeping around. They may not have to share the same blood.. Family is whoever you make it to be.
