I'll Teach My Daughter It's Okay To Be Angry

Updated: Jun 12, 2023

By Megha Das



I'll teach my daughter it's okay to be angry

at herself when she

falls prey to eons of

deep-rooted conditioning

even after being brought up in

a society where she's

classified as modern and woke

but sometimes a little too aggressive.


I'll teach my daughter it's okay to be angry

at them when she

lets them question who she is

and what she stands for

and most of all Why! Oh Why

is she the way she is

for the twenty-second time

in the twenty-first century.





I'll teach my daughter it's okay to be angry

at them when she is forced to hide

her baby bump. Tch, she won't be as focused anymore.

Or when she is pushed to deny

her relationship. Tch, she will soon quit to get married.

Or when she tries to survive the day

through her pain. Tch, she is always sick and tired.


I'll teach my daughter it's okay to be angry

at herself when she

thinks from five hundred perspectives, but

ignores her own and then overthinks about it

till she breaks down to keep up, after which she

paints her hands red, a matching shade on her lips and

eyes black and smiles so bright that the sun

would want to die when really,

she should simply be

okay with being angry.
