a daughter’s plight to get to speak to a boy,
not right for her in my protective eyes.
I see the bigger picture, one slip now and mudslides later,
young love is fleeting, lessons will be learned –
I wish her stronger than me without the burns.
He sends you flower and heart emojis,
it makes your heart skip a beat,
but you’re worth more than pixels on a screen,
you deserve eternally better,
than speaking to liars,
those stuck in superficialities,
save those moments of butterflies for a boy who deserves my sweet baby.
