My Mother's Daughter

My mother never drinks tea with sugar
She boils it with spices and herbs
Straining it into our old thermos

We always laugh when she tells us sugar is a killer
And spoon more of it in
The brown crystals sliding into our cups
And she tells us one day we will see

My mother's hands are long and smooth.
She turns me to the mirror
And picks out the hair I passed over
As I combed it carelessly in the morning
'always comb the back' 
She tells me
As I pick up my cloth bag and climb out of the iron gate

My mother stands straight to the skies
And walks like the soft wind 
She tells me to take smaller steps 
And remember I am a woman

My mother looks at me
And I see in her eyes
A girl with a face
That resembles hers
