I’m sorry

Sorry for all the times I can’t protect you from the cruelty and ugly of this world
For all the times your heart breaks in two, or more pieces
For the times you have to deal with both broken people and systems
For all the injustice you’ll encounter with no means of redress
For all the times you’ll have to confront petty and down right dirty with grace

For all the times you will be put down
To the extent you begin to doubt your own worth
For all the times you’re under appreciated, under valued, under loved, under cared for
For all the times you’re not treated like the queen you are
The quiet beauty who’s soul and spirit radiates from within lighting up another when allowed to breathe
The anbessa ye anbessa lij who doesn’t yet acknowledge her intellectual prowess

I’m sorry
But especially sorry if all this makes you feel any less of yourself
