Dragon Lady

You speak your words
like a dragon breathing fire.
You fight with vicious claws.
Your resilience astonishes me.

How I wish I could
be as strong as you.
You always taught me how.
Somehow I failed.

The truth is I think,
we all have our different ways
of combating demons in our path.
Maybe it’s my war to fight.

Your power makes me afraid-
Afraid if failing
Afraid of not being you
Afraid of being myself.

Hopefully someday my daughter
will look up to me.
Also see me as the dragon lady.
Not fearing the fire burning in my powerful soul.

  1. The last lines suggest that this poem is written for your mother who is inspiring but in an intimidating way. you admire and fear her and want to inherit her strength without the associated awe and claws.

    very well written!
