The first time we held hands,
I thought to myself
I could love you.
I could love you for forever and a day.
But forever turned into some few short months
that I would do anything to get back.
And that day,
the day that we first held hands,
is now only a remnant of
what could have been,
what should have been,
what never will be.

Es tut noch immer weh, wenn ich daran zurückdenke. Es macht mich kaputt, dass wir beide nicht mehr reden und nur noch in Erinnerungen leben. Es ist schrecklich, dir nicht einfach schreiben zu können. Dich nicht einfach anzurufen und zu fragen, ob du vorbeikommen magst. Ich will nicht das nur dieser Name in meinem eingespeichert ist. Ich will, dass du es wieder bist.
"We teach girls to shrink themselves to make themselves smaller.
We say to girls, “You can have ambition but not too much you should aim to be successful but not too successful otherwise you will threaten the man.”
Because I am female I am expected to aspire to marriage, I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support. But why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or for accomplishments which I think can be a good thing but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.
