She is reminded she isn’t good enough everyday.
“You can’t do by yourself, you need a man,” they say.
No one tells her; she is beautiful just the way she is.
No one tells her that she belongs to herself, she is not ‘his’.
She is taught to hate her body by them
She is told how unworthy she is by them.
No one tells her about the fierce fire burning in her heart.
That she too could be someone’s glowing light in the dark.
No, she is only told how she needs to change.
She is overlooked and underappreciated at every stage.
So she just writes her story down.
As a reminder of who she was
before ; she let her real self drown…💫
