My father wasn't an absolute feminist
but feminist enough to educate me
that feminism is okay and chivalry
is a virtue.
But it took me 18 years to learn
to love myself and respect the person
That everybody else has a story too.
That fuckboys exist.
So when a girl tripped and fell
in front of me, I relapsed my helping hand.
But I whispered,
'I will always help you to stand up
as long as you look at me
and give a smile loud enough
to say thanks'.
