Letter to My Daughter

Dear Daughter,

 

The strange man

who you called father

was only looking to bruise you at night

 

The homeless man on the train 

who raved about your beautiful breasts

only wanted to fondle with them

 

The drunken teenage boy

who told you to take your clothes off

was only looking to use you inappropriately

 

The amateur gynecologist

who confirmed your pregnancy

would only recommend murder

 

The kind mother

who said she loved you no matter what

only lived on a lie

 

The fake best friend

who carried knives to protect you from rumors

will only stab you with them

 

The caring nurse

who delivered your child

was the only person to hold your hand

 

The smiling couple

who took the child away

would only make you cry

 

The herd of policemen

who found your prune corpse inside the muddy river

only dumped it in an existing hole at the cemetery

 

The oblivious daughter

who now lives with a loving family

only deserves to know what the world made her mother suffer through

 

Love,

Your Mother

 

(who does not expect forgiveness but 

only wants you to realize her fatal mistakes)
