This is dedicated to my daughters, who I am trying to raise so that they know they are loved, they are beautiful, and they are magnificently wondrous. They are a treasure simply because of who they are.
This is for all the girls and women out there who need to hear that you are truly beautiful just because you are who you are.
I’ve grown weary of this endless degradation of the female body
Which flagrantly disregards her soul
I am tired of people seen only as objects
Plastic water bottles to be thrown into the sea
Use them once, use them twice
Then forgotten forever
But their pain resonates throughout the universe
I can feel it, to the bones
I see the people in their happy homes
But wonder about those who are not
It’s time to twist this macho plot
Throw a flower into the midst of the fray
It’s time to change, it’s time to pray
For the release of the daughters in beauty
