Poem for my Future Daughter

3.9.18 depressed house husband cover featuring running girl

You’re not too pretty to cry

Your mother cries

You’re the prettiest people I know

Tears make you human

 

Play football

Get rough

Roll in the mud

Get dirty

 

You were born here

They were born there

You’ll learn soon enough

Life isn’t fair

 

Embrace your body

Wear clothes you like

And clothes others don’t

Wear confidence

 

You’re smarter than guys

More intelligent than girls

Don’t stress about grades

Change the world

 

Success shouldn’t bring guilt

Never feel less

Hold your head high

You did your best

 

Anger is true

Sadness is too

Remember the light

That shines inside you

 

Size does matter

Not where you think

Grow your heart

Ignore your waist

 

When everything is gone

You’ll have your heart

Love is pure

Hatred keeps us apart

 

You’re a woman

Take pride

So many girls

Not enough guides
