How could I listen to you, Mother
When you are the one who told me
That the sea was dangerous?
That swimming in the ocean
Would end my life?
But the ocean
Is my home.
It’s where I
Was meant to be.
So how can I listen to you
When you tell me my Tinker Faerie
Will hurt me?
How can I listen to you, Mother
When you’ve been so wrong before?
