A Lioness She Was

by Deborah Akerele

A lioness she was
Fearless, brave
and courageous
She focuses on the pursuit
of her dreams

She roars at every distraction
that comes her way
And protects her territory
From predators.

She fights each day
With all her strength
Till she overcomes
those obstacles
That comes her way.
The lesser life was
not an option for her.

She wears her scars
as her best attire, made of
Stunning raze of fire.
Her scars made her stronger.
And beautiful.

A warrior, she was.
She fights
She fights
Till she wins.
