Mother

She needs a mother,
Not one who is there,
Just because society & the law,
Expect her to be there

She needs a mum,
A woman who looks beyond traditions,
Not one who treats her sons better than a daughter

She needs a mother,
Not one who was raised to teach her daughter to fear her,
But one that her daughter can run to

She needs a mum,
Not one who calls her daughter ‘you’,
Just because she can

She needs a mother,
Not a woman who will shout at her for going to wash her hands,
And not going with the dishes at the table

She needs a mother,
She needs love,
Not a parent,
That has been blinded with traditions,
And gender stereotypes
