The worries that overwhelm me

Based purely upon

Your lack of Y chromosome

Your caramel skin

Your parents absent income

 

I question daily how to instil

The knowledge that

You deserve it all

Whilst preparing for

The challenges

The barriers

The privileges you’ll lack

Forgive many an ignorance

Take time to educate

Always love

Always hope

Always remember

You are my greatest achievement

Shining bright from the moment

You first took breath

Never forget

Never question

Never deny

You are you

And there is nothing more sublime
