i'll tell her..


that this life is hers and noone should tell her how to own it.
i'll remind her that God gave us the rainbow to view the world because it is never really black and white.
that she should never not doubt because doubting doesnt make her weak, it makes her woman enough to take the truth.
and when those eyes stare her down and feed her disappointment she should learn to accept.
she should be as elastic as the vagina, learn to accept and to give and when the world decides to try to rape her of her innocence, she should learn to heal.
i'll tell her not to be afraid to cry, the tears wash away the hurt, the heartbreak, the failures, it prepares a venue for time to take its course.
and then i'll call her honey to remind her that sweet things never come easy, that just like the bees the world won't hesitate to sting her where it hurts most.
like a lighthouse, i'll lead her to safety.
and just because love like snow melts away easily, it doesnt mean she shouldn't reach out and grab it.
i'll make sure she knows that her caramel tinted skin is God's way of making sure the earth has a little flavour, remind her to treat every man with the same respect because this reality show called life is too short for her to be the judge, she should learn to be a participant.
show her that these feet should be able to carry her to the reality of her dreams but she shouldn't think running is the only way to walk.she should learn to enjoy the sand that keeps her from walking too fast and the water that runs onto shore to wash her scars away.
i'll make sure to let her know,that the millions of words in the dictionary doesnt describe her, how could they possibly begin to describe her uniqueness?
let her know that the birds and the bees cannot begin to describe the chemistry that brought her into this space.
remind her that her tears at birth is the beginning of the duality of good and bad, she should learn to accept each.with open arms she should embrace circumstances but also remember that they do not define who she is or who she would become.
i'll let her realise that the beings that will attract her and make her create her own sexual chemicals do not define her.let her know that love is filled with numerous flavours and she shouldn't be afraid to taste them.
i'll make sure to let her know that her mother isn't perfect, and neither is she.

Ill tell her she's lucky to have a mum like you. Who gives no illusions as to the world she was born in, but still gives her a healthy dose of love and awareness of self and God to overcome challenges. Lol at the reason for the rainbow, that's a new one :)

Work of art, Leggy. Pure unadulterated talent. You have a way with words. I especially love "i'll make sure to let her know,that the millions of words in the dictionary doesnt describe her, how could they possibly begin to describe her uniqueness?"

I'm beginning to think this teenager really isn't confused.
