"My poor mother
begged for a sheep
but raised a wolf."

I have a tab open of a picture of Harriett Tubman that I switch to whenever my parents walk in and think I’m doing homework.


I think I’ve been doing it since fifth grade idk why they haven’t caught on I just stare intently at the picture until they leave. 


I’m not the girl your mother warns you about.
I won’t kiss your best friend or break your heart.
I won’t make you choose between what you love to do & me.
I’m not cold. I’m not reckless.

I’m the girl your father mentions when your mom’s not around.
I’m the girl that gets away.

I will love you more than anything.
I will kiss you when you cry.
I will stand by your side until you decide otherwise.

And you’re just like your father, so you will.

You’ll let me go & I won’t look back,
But you will.
I promise you, you will.

I’m that girl.


Despite my every effort, I’ve ended up exactly like my father.
