Letter to my daughter



Dear Girl,

Don’t let them tell you
This isn’t appropriate
For I am telling you
It will always be fine
If you do it
Not killing even the smallest part
Of-your-own-self.

Don’t worry about the picture
Don’t go disheartened by the opinions
What if they don’t like it?
They will always be your colors
It will always be your canvas.

Don’t care too much
But do care enough
For your life would depend
In balancing the two.

Eat, love, laugh, dress
Inappropriately
If that is, what it is to be:
Your-own-self.
