Whole

Daughter,
my wish for you
is that you be whole.
Not just a hole
to be filled by some dullard's dick,
dumb ideas, or distressing
lack of imagination.
Not in a hole
shoveled by your sex;
a six feet under start.
Whole.
From your cells to your stars
whole.
Holy.
You.

integrity - the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished

For Ella's prompt at Real Toads

Perfect. The use of whole and holy is so much better than the vacant hole.

This makes me want to cry and rejoice at once, MZ.

So pwerful.

I love this,

"Whole.
From your cells to your stars
whole.
Holy.
You."

Wow.

I want a T-Shirt that says this. ♥

Don't mess with Mamma Bear. This transitions from tough to tender in the most magical way. LOVE it.

It reads like a prayer. I could almost imagine something like this for a coming of age ceremony. Strong and very heartfelt.

A strong call from mother to daughter to be strong when the world tries to mold you into its wish.

Ella said...

A wonderful wish..to be whole! Love this~ I bet she will be!

Jim said...

Very nicely written, Mom Zee. Good advice too, with the added play on words (hole, whole, around and around, then spun out with 'holy').

This is powerful:

"Not in a hole
shoveled by your sex;
a six feet under start."
