The.Republic.of.Aisha

Hopeless romantics are the unsung heroes of our society. They are willing to believe in the beauty of love and it’s fragile characteristics even when it continues to be an untamed beast of disappontment and heartache.


If they don’t know your dreams, then they can’t shoot em down.

— J. Cole in “Too Deep for The Intro”
