Mother

What you teach her
Will make or break her
Resurrect to
Happiness or
Forsake her

About the world
And of heaven
Make her life cake
Or bread
Unleavened

More than this
You make a
Paradise
Or hell

From what you
Believe
And what you tell

What you let her find for
Herself, let her partake of
Or leave upon the shelf

Will make in her a mind
A girl open and free
Or a prisoner in a jail
She’ll be
