Reflected in a mirror, I see my exiled face
Who gave me over to become a wife?
A Queen my Master made me – to people not my own
While mine are slaves and foreign to this place
O Esther, how came you here?
What will you do?
What have you done?
I did not choose to be here - taken from my people - dispossessed…
I am prize of warfare – a prize to be displayed
Today I’m Queen of Persia – but silent is my role
Do I dare disobey the boundaries of my life?
O Esther, who are you here?
Can you be given voice before your King?
Do you have words
from another Lord?
