My Daughter

not given enough credit
but I’ll give it where it’s due
MY daughter will know beauty
she’ll understand
beauty is fluid and undefined
and therefore, she is beauty
and I am beauty
the trees
the snails
the fish
and the snakes are beauty
she’ll know I tell her she is beautiful because she IS
not because she is MINE
she will know confidence
true confidence
that there is no rule book
and life consists of choices
no matter her age
She makes those choices
and no matter how hard anyone ANYONE tries to put her in a box
define her
label her
guide her or misguide her
SHE will make her choices and no one else
