some mistakes you learn from..
some mistakes cause damage..
some mistakes you regret forever..
and some just will not go away!
When we teach our girls about love,
and boys and men...
we teach them about broken hearts,
we teach them about values
and being careful.
we teach them about 'boys' wanting more
then they want to give...
we teach them to be true to themselves
and look for love that is real.
but do we teach them about 'boys'
who will not let them go?
do we teach them that some relationships
will exact a price higher then the initial price tag?
I have learned that lesson
now that I am all grown up.
I learned the lesson of hurt
and broken hearts..
I learned the lesson that you can love
and not have it returned,
and then I learned that some men
seek power and control
by trying to instill fear.
for some men 12,14,18, months is not long enough
for them to let go..
I find this curious,
that men of strength
would allow themselves to be so weak.
but I also find curious
how I, once so weak,
can feel so strong ..
I can see how pathetic
being focused on
in such an unhealthy way is..
I hope the one who has not let go..
who seeks control and power
by attaining visual information..
will also begin
to respect the power of a small town!
a small town owns its own..
and sees all!
so as we teach our girls
that there is a greater price to pay
for loving the wrong person
then just a broken heart..
lets also teach them
the beauty and power
of friends , family
and a town that allows no shadows.
no hidden places for cowardly men to hide!
