To my future daughter: Dating wrong men.
timer Published Date:2nd Oct, 2020

My dear, my darling little girl, as you grow up, you will fall for men whom you’ll slit your wrist apart for. You will pour your blood into their raging pride just to prove the depth of your heart. They will make you cry, they will judge the size of your thighs.

“You are not the one,”

“I’m sorry,” that’s all they will say.

It is then when your reflection in the mirror will start to lacerate. You are so unloved is what you will slowly slowly start to accept. Once lavenders and lilies used to grow in your breast, now you are a realm of human clasps and bruises. You’ll start to smile rarely, speak less often. You’ll doubt yourself, and times you wait inbetween text gets longer. You will lower your voice so he won’t let you go. You’ll change your shade just to be the colour of his rainbow. Crimson eyes and mascara stained cheeks are usuals but not his I love yous.

And times when he only wants to hear you is when he is digging deeper into your flesh, and your moans being swallowed under your cotton bedsheets.“You are still not enough,” that’s what he will say. But trust me, my sweetheart, your mamaa knows the best.

My darling, darling little girl,

He is not the one for you, my love nor he is the sunshine that you think he is. Your voices are not supposed to be lowered, but to be raised against any wrong and mysogyny. Your anatomy is not just to please them. First learn to love yourself as much as you have loved him. You are only visiting empty hallways in him, while you are meant to move continents for yourself. When your atoms are connected to thousands lives that blessed the earth with, you are not supposed to cry over any inconsistent man that doesn’t know how to treat you right. Wear your lioness skin to scare those predators away. Be wild, be brave, be persistent, be bold, be fierce but take no half love in return.

My darling, darling little girl,

And when you start loving yourself too, lavenders and lillies will start to grow again and again and again and again.
