and it’s a sad thing
policing your daughters
because you teach them that how others percieve them
is of a higher value than their self worth.
it’s even sadder how the same ways in which you shun them
and then are surprised by their sneaky ways
is an outlet which becomes a habit when practiced more than once.
it’s angry how you say you are not your parents generation yet you desire to follow the same traditions
into an age where letters are not even sent.
it’s pitiful how the freedom you suck out of her is the same freedom which will then be controlled by her spouse/partner
it’s amazing this circle of life you keep us girls in
to be policed
to be silenced
to be conditioned to feel nothing
