I’m going to tell my daughter
That expectations are not worth her time
Don’t wait for princes and
Castles may not be all you dreamed of.
I’m going to tell her she doesn’t need to be saved
That she can be brave
And write her own story.
I’m going to say baby, 
However your life turns out is perfect
It’s all just a cosmic game anyway.
Enjoy the gifts you have. 
gaze in the mirror and know that you 
Exactly as you are.
There should be no disappointment 
When you are 29 and your life doesn’t look
How you thought it would when you were 7.
It’s all ok
It’s all beautiful
You chose it
