The Tyrant Queen and I

A day and a night’s worth to the twentieth power
No time or patience will change this hour
You and i parallel to each our tower
Leaves none but us in cower

You, a tyrant queen, and i, broken glass
Shards strike your past
Commanding you with mass
A tyrant that you are, turn fast

I, the broken glass, left alone
I, the broken glass, reflects your Rome
I, the broken glass, have no home
For you, the tyrant queen, turn away from her own

Hence, in this hour

No time or patience will change your power

The author's comments:
This is related to my mom and my own personalities. We both are very aggressive with our beliefs--her not accepting me and me forcing her to accept me for being transgender. To avoid conflict, we use that as a deterrence.
