milk and honey

In love with this book and want to share my favourite quotes... Hope that will inspire you.
i am ready for you
i have always
been
ready for you
how it is so easy for you
to be kind to people
he asked

milk and honey dripped
from my lips as i answered

cause people have not
been kind to me
love will come
and when love comes
love will hold you
love will call your name
and you will melt
sometimes though
love will hurt you but
love will never mean to
love will play no games
cause love knows life
ha been hard enough already
you might not have been my first love
but you were the love that made
all the other loves
irrelevant
don't mistake
salt for sugar
if he wants to
be with you
he will
it's that simple
that's the
thing about love
it marinates your lips
till the only word your
mouth remembers
is his name
you were not wrong for leaving
you were wrong for coming back
and thinking
you could have me 
when it was convenient
and leave when it was not
it is a part of the
human experience to feel pain
do not be afraid
open yourself to it
there is a difference between
someone telling you
they love you and
them actually
loving you
accept yourself
as you were designed
losing you
was the becoming
of myself
i want to apologize to all the women
i have called pretty
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 the most you have to be proud of when your
spirit has crushed mountains
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient or you are extraordinary
not because i don't think you're pretty
but because you are so much more than that
i have
what i have
and i am happy

i've lost
what i've lost
and i am
still
happy
if you're not enough for yourself
you will never be enough
for someone else
