Steadfast in my integrity: I am my mother’s daughter

I need not seek the spotlight

In order to outshine the false prophets

I need not stand ahead of the crowd

In order to have a raised voice

I need not tell a hundred and one lies

In order to achieve a unified vision


I may stand to the side

I may be small

I may shiver at the cold

Yet I will preserve

Yet I will stand strong

Yet I will withstand


I remain steadfast in my integrity

Through this winter of discontent

I remain steadfast in my convictions

Despite the cold blowing winds

I retain a sense of personal clarity

In spite of the lingering clouds

I am my mother’s daughter

I am my son’s mother

And honor them I shall
