If I ever have a daughter..

If I ever have a daughter, after she crawls I will teach her to walk a tightrope between a goddess and a humble monk. She will learn that her light, like the sun glows and grows the world. In the darkest nights of her life I will be there to remind her that the moon is above her.Both have the ability to cast shadows upon us, or beautiful illumination.

I will shun colouring books. The world is her canvas to paint her dreams upon. When she lashes out at me, I will hug her harder. When she cries, I will let her taste how salty this world can be.After which I will bake her a chocolate chip cookie to remind and comfort her in knowing there is sweetness too.

When it comes to boys? Pssssh. I will laugh. “Hunny, I have a PhD in bad boys and fixer uppers.” I will know every excuse,every elaborate sneak out scheme. I know what she will say and every reaction. Being my daughter? Jesus,what a reaction that will be. However,like my instinct to breath, as certain that the moon will rise and set. I will love her and listen to her as if it’s the first time I’ve ever heard it. I promise to never say,”I told you so.” Don’t get it twisted though, I’m a mama bear and you’re my cub,so I will want to rip out his throat. I promise to try to show restraint….try

While she will be my daughter, she will be her. Whoever that is,and whoever she wants to be. I will teach her not to exist,but to live. To undeniably be herself,Truly and completely.regardless of how many times this world knocks her down,which it will. I will be her net if she needs catching,a push when she wants one and a raw dose of reality if she needs it.

If I ever have a daughter,I hope that she knows I’ve loved her before I will ever have her,before I’ve seen her,before I knew my own name and will for as long as the stars shine.

So I ask you…..

Lets have a little chat yeah? Grab a coffee, hell grab some wine. We are going for a walk down a lane; memory lane. George Santayana was quoted as once saying, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
Throughout history we have at each time period had a war or a movement, all shaping the people of that time and their children.

Now I ask are we the condemned? Have we closed the doors of our mind? Through the blindness of our ego we have forgotten the present and real fight. Our idea of individualism is tainted, we misplaced power in the idea of this individualism as what will save us. What if that energy source was focused and channeled into an interconnected society and consciousness?
Lets not let the fights of the past, the lessons, the warnings be dried ink on a page of a dusty book.
I say fuck pro-feminism, fuck anti-feminism, fuck religion, fuck labels, fuck imaginary geographical boarders, fuck money, fuck race, fuck heterosexuality, fuck homosexuality, fuck gender. Our movement? To wake up, change, grow and evolve to the wonder and greatness that we are collectively as beings on this spinning sphere. There is a fire in our hearts, a hole yet to be filled. We are too smart to be this stupid, delusional, and indifferent. That my friends is the only fight and we are worth fighting for.

Imagewill you remain (if you are), as a conditioned drone, floating about your existence, perpetuating the cycle of ignorance, or will you rise to your true conscious self, and all of us stand united?
