You are the Answer

Dear Daughter,

You are the answer
To a prayer
I never dare
whisper out loud.

You are the piece of my soul
I never knew was missing
But recognized
the moment I laid eyes on you

You are the floating hope
I feared was drowned
long ago

You are the reckoning force
Far stronger than any cage
They’ll try to place you in.

You are the sweet antidote
To a poison
spoonfed to us for ages

You are a vision-maker
A mold-breaker
An Earth-shaker

And I hope you know
Though you’ve grown
within the safehold
of my heart
You were never meant
to be contained by it.

You were made for so much more.

Dear daughter…

You are the answer ♥️
