Wow so powerful
Let me tell a story of a girl I didn’t know,
People hurt her, pushed her down,
Told her where to go.
Despite all that they did to her,
She never let them win.
No matter how they beat her down,
She never let them in.
She fought to keep her freedom,
She beat back with her mind,
Her body may have been small and weak,
But her strength was all inside.
They never got the best of her,
And after they moved on,
She put herself together,
And built a life hard-won.
Education and children,
Skills and friendships and more!
She used that strength inside her,
To overcome the pain from before.
The mountains that she climbed,
Grew bigger all the time.
One day I will know her,
And accept her mountains as mine.
