Preliminary Findings

Thu, 11/27/2014 - 11:34 -- Riley

Daughter of an Irish man,

Daughter of a German woman,

Born from a supernova love affair

Easy come, easy go.


Daughter of a generous man,

Daughter of a loving woman,

Learned kindness at an early age

What comes around goes around.


Daughter of a stubborn man,

Daughter of a willful woman,

Taught to stand up for herself

The world is her oyster.


Daughter of a blind man,

Daughter of a depressed woman,

Tainted with disease in her blood

Everything happens for a reason.


Daughter of a clever man,

Daughter of a crafty woman,

Shoulders buckled under weighty expectations

Failure is not an option.


Daughter of an absent man,

Daughter of a scattered woman,

Shipped back and forth like chattel

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.


Daughter of a caustic man,

Daughter of a saucy woman,

Blessed with a razor tongue

A chip off the old block.


Daughter of a buoyant man

Daughter of a lively woman

Eyes shining with hope

All’s well that ends well.
