I can not be sorry for who I am;

it mostly comes from my mothers.

My fathers helped to shape me.

So have many others.


I’m black,  I’m white; I’m good, I’m bad.

 I’m everywhere inbetween.

I shoud be sorry I’m barren.

My daughter would have been Queen.


The Queen will never be ruler.

That is how fate chose to play.

We have to deal with what’s dealt.

Listen to what the cards say.


So hearken not my dear daughter.

You will not learn my ways.

You will not bear your own offspring.

Do not listen to what I say.
