Love is Salvation
11/15/2018 8:26pm

Do you ever wonder if the only salvation of this fucked up world we live in is indeed, love?
It can be the only thing in my mind that makes sense:
Out of all the evil in this world
Love seems to be he one who is redeemed
I mean, love has caused death and murder,
But still, it鈥檚 what we hold still to.
It is what we hope for.
Love has caused massacres and fueled hate,
But that doesn鈥檛 stop us from etching little red organs on the front of Hallmark cards and sell them and we eat it up.
Love,
Always on redemptions end.
We can always redeem love.
In its very essence it holds the dark, it motivates the light.
We always forgive love.
If nothing in this world
It has to be what will save us from.... us .

We read "Blood Child" by Octavia Butler and talked colonialism, sexual politics, consent, motherhood and childbirth, and tools used to numb the masses.
