"And though she be but little, she is fierce."- Shakespeare


Mom, I'll never be like your other daughters

My sisters and I are different as the salt and

The clear, fresh waters

I'm the salt- my tongue and mind are the

Lemon pepper and the pumpkin spice

Without me, your home would be a pot of

Plain, unseasoned rice

How I taste individually, Mom, you'll never know

Unless you decide I'm not a weed and concur to

Let me grow

I don't plan to change; I'm not gonna stop being me so

That I can be like them

Even so, Mom, I wish you could accept and

Love me just the way I am
