I Want To Live

“I want to live
the rest of my life,
however long or short,
with as much sweetness
as I can decently manage,
loving all the people I love,
and doing as much as I can
of the work I still have to do.
I am going to write fire
until it comes out of my ears,
my eyes, my noseholes-everywhere.
Until it’s every breath I breathe.
I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor!”
– Audre Lourde

  1. I think it’s Audre Lorde and not Audrey Lourde.
    But I might be wrong.
    Thank for sharing this beautiful « fire » ❤️

  2. Thank you Hunt! My mistake! Will update. Appreciate the correction!
