My mother warned me.
She worried
bruises looked terrible,
wouldn’t go away.

I’ve done OK by my knees,
spotted wingtips of a butterfly
closing, like breaths,
around your head.

The Natural:
I did this portrait to showcase the beauty of Yarrah, who is a beautiful woman i have recently began following on tumblr.  I had alot of fun doing this and although I’m a bit rusty it was alot of fun painting her natural hair.  I am working on a few more portraits of natural beautiful women hopefully I can get them done soon.

Nine Wonderful Words About Words

(via nervous-times)


i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that
