Viral Love Note: Strength

She saw the murky road in the distance

A long stretch of dare marbled with mystery,

Her lungs clenched as she clutched her pearls,

The air, charged with fear and worry, taunted her

But her pearls were charged with power and a cultivated intention.

She would not be moved, she would never be moved again

By anything she couldn’t control.

It had to go around her, above her, through her without

diminishing her.

She straightened and spread her warrior wings

And drank in a cocktail of pure defiance

The dream reaching for her was beyond the dust

And she was never going to be someone who shrugged off destiny,

So she lifted her whole being and flew into forever.
