Dutiful Daughter

I forgive you for my sheltered life

I forgive you for the expectations being the eldest

Your dutiful daughter

I forgive you for the sacrifices I made

I forgive you for the decisions that led to my trauma

Your dutiful daughter

I forgive you for wanting me to be the perfect wife

I forgive you for the decisions I made to end my life

Your dutiful daughter

I forgive you for letting me down when I needed you the most

I forgive you for the years I played dress up

Your dutiful daughter

I forgive you as I now live a life of freedom

I forgive you as I have now been liberated

Your dutiful daughter

I forgive you for thinking I let you down

I forgive you for the guilt that weighed me down

I forgive you

As your dutiful daughter

I embrace you both for the woman I’ve become

I embrace you both for changing your mindset

For your dutiful daughter
