Every time you
tell your daughter
you yell at her
out of love
you teach her to confuse
anger with kindness
which seems like a good idea
till she grows up to
trust men who hurt her
cause they look so much
like you

To Fathers with Daughters // Milk and Honey, Rapi Kaur.

“Cada vez que
le dices a tu hija
que le gritas
por amor
le enseñas a confundir
ira con amabilidad
lo que parece una buena idea
hasta que crece para
confiar en hombres que la hieren
porque se parecen tanto
a ti.”
