Yesterday

yesterday is a long way away away away

your parenting won’t define me

your legacy won’t be mine

it’s ashes and dust

your false religion with it’s asceptic speech

no cursing but much hating

a strong word on immodesty and a strong hand coming at me

it’s ashes and dust

it’s a long way away away away

I will have my day

a life I live and define Faith differently

I reject religious dogma

I will think and question and choose

regard all with human dignity and sanctity

see myself not in the lens of yesterday’s child

but as a woman, equal to a man, with a strong voice

regarding kindness, loyalty and courage as the measure of a good life
