A to Z Challenge


For the A-Z challenge, we decided to post a new and original poem every day. Today Regina shares a poem about her name for the letter "R".


Regina

My sister named me
after her childhood friend
I never knew.
She named me Queen,
imparted power in 
a namesake.

I am the child that united
her father and my mother,
pushed her farther from the
house where I held court.

And now miles and years apart
I reign wanting for her return 
to the kingdom.
