I Am Not Your Sister

I am not your daughter. I am not your cousin. I am not a future mother. Don’t respect me because of that.

I am not someone’s sister. I am not someone’s daughter. God forbid, I am not someone’s future wife. Don’t respect me because of that.

No relationship to anyone, in any context, makes me warrant your respect. A ring on my finger or being someone’s little girl is not a determining factor.

I am a person. I am a human being. Respect me because of that.

Not treating me as an object because I’m someone’s daughter is not good enough. Don’t treat me as an object because I too was born and have walked the earth and was created in the image of God.

I hope to be someone, not someone’s.
