Day 9: Sisters

I am blessed
For I have many sisters.

Sisters of the blood,
Herstory linked to mine
Through generations of love and sacrifice.
Her name surrendered to family lines,
A ghostly presence which weaves the family story.

Sisters of the soul,
Who chose to connect their story to mine
Trusting I will remember,
That life existed before they became
Daughters, wives and mothers.

Sisters of the body,
Defined and bound by words
Of who we should be
And not who we are.

Sisters I have yet to meet,
Their voices and lives,
Reflected in the eyes,
Of my strong and wise sisters.
