i am not my mother's daughter


May 18, 2010

i am not my mother's daughter
and in that i must take some comfort.

i am instead born of a woman
who made a painful choice so early in her life

and gave me away
so as not to suffer her strife.

for my birth i will always be grateful,
and know i can see through her wiser green eyes.

i'd like to believe that in her fighting spirit
and love of passionate freedom i will fly.

because, while i was raised by a woman
for whom nurture was burdened with regret,

i am not my mother's daughter.
who i shall become and what is my true nature

i simply don't know yet.
