A Woman So Strong



You gave me not what I wanted, took away all that I adored;

You gave me what I least admired, gifted me all that I abhorred.


I wept and did whatever I could; you kept silent watching me forlorn,

I stood, fought and accepted what life brought, collected pieces–torn.


You continue to show me testing times; I walk, fall and manage to smile,

I still cry, not to ask you to be kind; test me till eternity and I promise I’ll be fine.


You challenge me and I do the same, you make it worse and I’m all game;

I’ll be those few who never give up; I challenge you that I’ll forever remain.


Bring it on—the toughest of times, I’ll still make hay while the sun shines;

Come what may, you will always see how I illuminate the darkest of nights.


Be as harsh as you possibly can, I’ll stand tall as a mountain giant;

Push me to the limits and one day you’ll see all of them failing to survive.


That’s how I take each hardship that befalls; you may continue to pour in;

Yet, I would not give up at all, because I have learnt to go on and on.
