Raising Queens

March 29, 2018

Never will I read my daughter fairy tales
About women being damsels in distress
All these stories have paved generations
Lifetimes of broken hearts and regret
Instead I'll read to her stories

Of Independence, Power and Success
She needs to know that women were queens
Ruling and Reigning amongst the best

She must never think that happiness
Is about being loved by the opposite sex
Happiness is first loving herself wholeheartedly, fiercely and with respect
So raise her like the queen that she will be
Set her standards high
When she's almost ready
She will spread her wings and fly

Our featured Pasifika poet this week is Sulu Tukana Wong. Sulu describes her poems as being about girl power and her own life journey's that she's experienced through love, heartbreak and so forth. Aside from being a doting mum to her 3 year old son, Sulu is also a bank officer at a local bank and loves the challenges that both roles present her with. When she's not busy holding done the realities of life, she loves to escape into her little world of arts which is includes: music, doodles, cooking, blogging and her utmost favourite, poetry. You can follow more of her work on Instagram : @palmtreespoetry
