Defender

Defender by Kayla Bach

I am a defender of my Mother

Brave, determined, true

For I have come to know Her well

and I want you to know Her too.

The world will tell you,

“SILENCE!” “We do not speak her name.”

Do not hear their yelling;

Speak it just the same.

My Mother is all powerful,

but yet, She needs me still

for I am born of Her spirit,

I am Her little girl.

I am a defender of my Mother

For She always defends me

Despite my sins and errors

She wants me eternally.

I am a defender of my Mother

-brave and strong and true

I will speak Her name, and

I will share Her truth with you.
