Happy New Year, folks, and hope this bright new season will add cheers and sparkle to your lives. I am writing on Write Tribe 100 Words on Saturday-2014-1 on the prompt, ‘My Little Sister’. Since it is the first edition for season 2014, how can I stay far behind? For starters, I don’t have a sister and can’t tell how I miss having one. In my imaginary world, I keep speaking to my ‘sister’ that I never had and keep scripting conversation in my dream world. Now, enough of the drama and let’s jump straight to the prompt.
This Week’s Prompt is: My Little Sister
Dear lil’ Sister,
You are the apple of my eyes. It is natural to dote on you as my lil’ sister in our relationship but you are a friend first. I shall let you be who you are and will never stifle your free spirit through society’s classification of how you should behave, wear or think as a woman. I shall respect you as an individual and let you be rather than view you as a daughter, sister or someone’s wife. You are an individual first and it is important for you to bloom and grow as a free-thinker with a strong persona.
I don’t have a sister and this how I want my ‘imaginary’ sister to be. I know it is very utopian in a world dominated by patriarchy and fucktards but this how I wanna my sister to grow at a time when women are born and bred in a difficult situation. It is a sad fact how women are exploited and in many families, rich or poor, the girl-child is unwanted and treated like second class citizens. It pains the heart on how women are treated as inferior. I dedicate this prompt to women whose lives are clouded and belied by old-age patriarchal traditions in obscure villages and, mind you, rich families.
