Proud

Phillips-woman-and-child
Proud – holding

her child’s hand.
Proud – when
wealthy women
turned away…
Proud – of who
she is and where
she has been –

Clinging to her
child – her
dead son
she would not
let him go –
her feet kept
beating back
and forth, her
rocker moved.

She lowers her eye’s
tears
pour down her face…
still proud – of
her child –
she holds.
