“We carry our mothers inside us,
their voices, their habits surprise us,
slipping out suddenly,
after we’re opened to life’s pain.
When we’ve discovered that we are the sum of their stories,
that we must love their defeats as we do their victories.
Triumph and tragedy, mothers and daughters,
they beget each other like Russian dolls –
forever enclosing and being enclosed.”
