Magpies Poem - Brian Harrison

Me and My Daughter
My daughter and I are the same,
different journeys, same ending.
We were one person,
but she sprang from me and became another,
she is my opposite, and my mirror,
she was born to me, born a girl
I was born to my mother, born a girl
All of us like stairs,
one step after another,
going up and down,
but all going the same way.

This poem shows how the mother and daughter feel that they are different, but turn out to be really similar people.  The last words of this poem came from the bottom of page 215-Tan.
