She Said So Mother

Years of generational erasing
The hatred negating
All that our ancestors have done

I’m here today to ask
And pray
To call on you
When the desecration
Continues

Will you
Hear my prayer?
Today, tomorrow… Forever?

Will my unborn baby
Understand this fervor?

I think so
Mother
She says
She knows so
Mother
It’s part of your blood
It’s in your blood
She said so
Mother–
