National Poetry Month: Daughter

by Fahiya Rashid

I am the daughter of the forest
ever breathing, ever there
I cannot be terminated, because I always
sprout back
I am the weed that grandmother
pulls out of her garden every day
I am the weed that is always ripped up
and shredded apart
But when the sun rises every morning
and takes its place in the horizon
I will ascend from the dark, musky soil
I am unearthed once more--
the daughter of the forest
