heritage

I come from

the womb

of woman

ready to love,

rich with blood,

intention,

and promise:


I come from walls that hummed,

laughed,

grew to my form,

walls that held my dreams,

sweetly,

wholly,

until I was born.


I come from randomness & divinity,

an untouchable place of wonder,

where love exists endlessly.

I come from my mother,


who painted me,

with limbs, lessons, and love -

year

after year,

until I could paint myself;

I come from who I will become.


Mother.
