My Mother's Daughter This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

By Jasmine S, Mesquite, TX

I am my mothers daughter
and her mothers child
whose mother heard once
of a mother who fought
with earth and master

Master over her body
she must fight
day in and out
to produce from the earth
for a master

Master over her body
she must lay in submission
day in and out
to produce from her womb
a son
to carry on
to become a master

Master over her mind
that she must silence
her thoughts
a vocabulary
not large enough to express
an opinion
she must not have
least it upset her master

Master over her mind
