I am from the darkest depths of my father’s dreams

First born, his “brown baby girl”

“Samantha” from bewitched, Lil sister Tabitha

Apple of his eye

birthdays 5 days apart

his spitting image

I am from my mother’s young naive love

Love so pure, untainted, beautiful

Her diamond in the rough

Both born on the 14th day of separate months

I am from my own place!

unapologetic, upfront,

To thy self “unworthy” cuz I

still blame the hand I was

dealt – sorry Not, sorry
