Beyoncé rarely talks about her personal life.
In a new poem, however, she reflects on how her daughter has affected her life.
"It's my daughter, she's my biggest muse/There's someone, we all find out soon/more important than ourselves to lose," she wrote in a piece called "Bey the Light" for CR Fashion Book. "But for my daughter I dream a day/When no one roots for others to fail/When we all mean what we say."
Beyoncé, 32, recently made headlines for delivering a show-stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. For those kinds of shows, she wrote, she taps into her stage persona, Sasha Fierce -- and it doesn't stop there.
"Though we're different as blue and red," she wrote. "I'm not afraid to draw from her in performance, rifts, even in bed."
The poem also touches on her deep connection with her late grandmother, the value she places on prayer and how she views her role as a performer.
"You call me a singer, but I'm called to transform/to suck up the grief, anxiety and loss of those who hear me into my song's form," she wrote. "I'm a vessel for all that isn't right/for break-ups and lies and double-cross/I sing into that vessel a healing light."
