I know what it is like out there in the world. Everything pushes down on your little shoulders. You aren’t tall enough or pretty enough or skinny enough. Your breasts are too small. Your ass is too big. Put on makeup. Smile more. Don’t be a bitch. Don’t be a whore, but be more of a whore.
The whole thing is designed against you. It’s like walking around since birth with your shoes on the wrong feet. Be seen and not heard, but always look your best.
Well, that all stops now that daddy’s here. I see you. I see you, but not in the way that you’re expected to be seen. Can you feel my eyes looking right through you? Can you feel the way these words are ripping into your heart. I see all the tender parts that make you soft. I see all the rugged parts that make you hard. I see the parts where you’ve been broken and have now been put back together.
I hear you. But speak up sweet heart. Scream how you feel. Make my ears bleed. I don’t care. There’s nothing you can ever say to me that will make me turn away. There is no secret I won’t hold close. There is no desire I won’t fulfill. There is no story too long for me not to give you my full attention. As long as you have air in your lungs never stop letting the world hear your voice.
There is nothing from your past we can’t overcome. I know how it feels to be scared and hurt, I know that you feel like the world has been against you your whole life, but daddy is here to tell you it isn’t that way anymore. I know you don’t need me to fight your battles, but nevertheless I’ll be here beside you. If it’s ever needed I’ll stand in front of you and be you’re shield. When you’re stuck in quicksand I’ll get you a rope. And if there is no rope I’ll jump in just to be with you.
This is the promise a daddy makes. I will be you’re biggest fan. I will be your loudest cheerleader. This is the oath I swear. And all I ask for in return is you promise me the same.
