Celebrating Her

You take her out of the closet for parties
When she matches your outfit
To impress your family
With your parenting skills
When you want to show off to your friends that you have a complete set

But she’s not formal enough for the really special occasions
Your wedding
The celebration of the birth of your son
Your mom was surprised to see her at Christmas

It’s sad that you don’t grasp the difference between your daughter and a handbag.
She’s not an accessory
To be used when it suits you
She deserves better than that
She deserves better than you.

*I’m wondering if a materialistic person can ever really love a human. Is it even possible or is it beyond their wiring? Does everyone and everything serve a utilitarian purpose and that’s it? Just a Monday afternoon musing.
