Penelope

I am my father’s anger

I am my mother’s pride

I have my father’s hands

I have my mother’s eyes

I am twisted by their love

I am woven by their fears

Colored by their pasts

Dyed through their years

Like Penelope in a tower

I unweave every day

What they have given

I work to take away
