I strive, I thrive

To every impediment of life

I express my heartfelt gratitude

For succoring me to fend for myself

And thrive commensurate with the existing conditions

Oblivious to the “what people will say” jargon.

 

Every time I emotionally invested myself

To the point of mental bankruptcy

My resilience, persistence and resoluteness

Helped me thrive, grow and evolve

 

When the furiously choppy waters

Of the seemingly infinite ocean

Inundated my pent-up desires

My credence in self

Helped me thrive, maneuvering the perilous high tides.

 

For a strong woman often tends to thrive, progress

Despite the trammels and obstacles

Rediscovering herself anew each day!
