circle of love, circle of life 

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
