there was no honor for them 

I often think of the women of my tribe 

That came before me 

High born women called

Bebe and

Khanum 

And how my relatives today revel in the fact that

We came from nobility 

From honor.

But

If my mother did not choose my father

And if my grandmother was widowed and given nothing

And if my aunt was punished for loving a man 

Nobility or not

High rank, daughters of generals

There was no honor in their upbringing.

No.

You treated my ancestral females like

Porcelain dolls and 

Cattle.

Beautiful to look at

But only valued for fertility.
