assume the shooting stance;
stand with your thighs shoulder-width apart,
feet firmly planted on two mountains
this one called endurance,
and the other, courage.
point your shoulder toward the north, toward home.
fit your arrow to the bow;
the shaft goes to the arrow rest
and you march into battle.
grasp the bowstring;
feel it as limber as a lifestring
test it, curve it, flex it.
tuck your thumb and little finger away,
for now. your fear, with them.
raise your bow a little higher than
sets your sights high
in life and love and war.
make yourself the center of all targets, even though
your heart will never be a bull’s-eye.
is that everyone knows who you are. // e.c. (via leofilz)

“How is it that she can just stand there, not saying a word, and make us feel so much? Her talent is undeniable, and she is a force to be reckoned with.” - Charlize Theron
Our Leader, the Mockingjay.
She’s the face of this rebellion. They’ll follow her.
“You’re still trying to protect me. Real or not real,” he whispers.“Real,” I answer."Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.”
Can we talk about how hard agreeing to this must be for Katniss? She’s been fighting her whole life. She fought to keep her sister and her mother alive for all those years. She fought in the 74th Hunger Games and fought through the agony of surviving through it. She fought through the 75th Hunger Games, and is now fighting through being without Peeta. She’s seen countless people die right in front of her, yet here she is, agreeing to fight. Inevitably agreeing to witness more people die. She knows she might be the peoples’ last hope, and as easy as it would be to step down from her position of The Mockingjay, The Symbol of the Rebellion, she persists on, because that’s the kind of person Katniss Everdeen is.
