For My Daughter

Art reflection: Who Am I?

First and Foremost:

            I am a mother.

I name this first because

            it matters most.

Marcia is important!

            She is my daughter.

*

I grew up without a mother.

She abandoned me

            and my four siblings.

I learned how important it is to have a mother

            because I did not have one.

*

My father needed to immigrate

            to the United States.

I was 19.

*

Without my parents to defend me

I experienced much mistreatment.

            Physical abuse.

            Psychological abuse.

            Emotional abuse.

I want a better future for my daughter.

I don’t want her to suffer

            the way I have suffered.

                                    Mother 7-23-15

                                    Quien Soy? Who Am I?
