Between The Dee And The Don – Jackie Way

I will stand not in the past or
in the future
not in the foreground or the
background;
not as the first child or the
last child.
I will stand alone in the
middle ground.

I was conceived between the
Dee and the Don.
I was born in the city of crag
and stone.

I am not the daughter to one
father.
I am not a sister to one
brother.
I am light and dark.
I am father and mother.

I was conceived between the
Dee and the Don.
I was born in the city of crag
and stone.

I am not forgiving and I am
not cruel.
I will not go against one side.
I am not wise or a fool.
I was not born yesterday.

I was conceived between the
Dee and the Don.
I was born in the city of crag
and stone.

I can say tomorrow is another
day tomorrow.
I come from the old world
and the new.
I live between laughter and
sorrow.
I live between the land and the sea.

I was conceived between the
Dee and the Don.
I was born in the city of crag and stone
