Negative By Proxy (The psychological damage of a child into womanhood)

My mama said you are the thin one
That made my sister feel so fat
My mama said she was the pretty one
That made me feel so ugly

My mama said she was the the clever one
That made me feel so dumb
My mama said Iwas the sexy one
That made my sister feel so ugly

I am beauty and I am the beast

Here I am Mama, take a look at me now
My sister too
We are both oh so clever and beautiful
Survivors to the end

Though parts of the negative by proxy remain with us both

I love him.
Me I try to carry on
and express my life
the best way that I can
through images and writing
Thankyou for looking

    I believe we can re-write our scripts ….it is not an easy task for sure but we can write over with more positive and our resilience maybe could be seen as a blessing.
    What we say to our kids is powerful and sometimes we get it so wrong….I so understand where you are coming from here.
    I got very little positive strokes or even negative ones as a matter of fact….I was the child that fell into a quiet corner and became invisible..
    And then I found ink and started to paint myself ..xx
