FOR THOSE WOMEN

b7ae1b86c88597c97089942c58273a88


This is for the women who seek motherhood from sisterhoods with other foreign women. This is for the women who never had a mother that fought for her daughter’s rights, taught her to be reserved and breach man’s decorum, blamed her for the hurt she carried on her back. This is for the women who have no agency except through their longing desire to scrunch themselves up under the arms of another woman-loving-woman.


This is for women looking for a sentimental mother in the form of another body. This is for the women who never learned the beauty of their own body. This is for the women who have so much anxiety around others, especially men. This is for the women who make mistakes and get criticized endlessly for ‘not doing it right.’ Were you not learning? Why were you not given mercy at the hands of those who claimed they loved you?


This is for the women who have to keep a precise, strong, and uptight tone around others as subtle self defense. This is for the women who need a home, who learned sadness, who carried their mother’s anxiety. This is for the women who have raised broken hearts.


This is for the women who want a mother.

This is for the women who want a mother.

This is for the women who want a mother.
