An empire builder and daily hustler,
she uses grit for bricks and a vivid vision
for a firm foundation.
She sits on a throne not made of gold,
but of hard-earned respect
for the hard work she pours –
bare hands, whole heart, all soul.
Every new victory, sometimes,
she wears as a crown,
but on most days, she is unadorned –
effortless in her elegance,
simple in her entirety.
She walks with quiet confidence,
and is at her loudest when she is silent.
but vulnerably gentle,
she embraces spontaneity
and breathes life into her own reality.
Always hopeful and not ever fazed,
she never leaves any dream undreamed.
She stands behind her fortress as strong as her,
built from work that speak of her truth,
as she gazes towards new boundaries to conquer.
Then, she reminds herself:
“I am empowering, never overpowering.”
