Father's Daughter Poem by Joeline Rayment


You can slash me, you can break me
but you cannot ever unmake me.
You can hurt me, you can tear me
but i will not let you scare me.

and ill never bow in fear
and ill never hide my tear
and my love youll never slaughter.
Becuase my mothers pain birthed me
and my sisters love nursed me
and i am my father's daughter.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

For me, Family is always the strongest effect on my life for good or for ill.

I am blessed that my family gave me love, strength, pain and loss. For in doing this they also gave me the open minded ability to turn one of these into another.

To them I feel the greatest of gratitudes, even for the times of pain and loss, for they shaped me into a multidimentional person. Complexity thy name be....Human
