I am excited to see a generation of women who will raise their boys to be good rather than their girls to be scared.
You swore me safe conduct.
"I did, but my dragons made no promises. And you threatened their mother.”
My grandmother told me
to never start my sentences with “I”.
It makes you sound
I think I do it in spite of her.
I think selfishness
is a learned trait that so many
young girls haven’t quite accepted.
I am selfish because I want
more than a lackluster love;
I want more than
a half-baked career.
I am my grandmother’s
I think she knows it.
Maybe a relationship is just two idiots who don’t know a damn thing except the fact that they’re willing to figure it out together.
