a little bit rapunzel

I am my family?s restitution paid

My mother coveted another?s garden

The mother traitor

 

Given over  to Herself as comfort

Herself the fierce and ugly aspect

The mother jailor

 

Voice and beauty my only blessings

I braid my escape from enforced solitude

The birds

 

will teach me the way in their own language

Lead me through the desert of blind wandering

the thorns

 

blind you until you hear my song  and I find you

My tears fall on your eyes blinded by the thorns

You see me
