The you with swollen eyes
The you with positive vibes
The you who has had a horrendous day
The you who couldn’t make a way
The you who hasn’t slept peacefully at nights
The you who has lost all her chocolate bites.
I have read about Frida Kahlo and Hellen Keller
I have read the stories of these audacious women
I don’t know them and I haven’t met them
But I know you and I have met you
And you are my dauntless hero just like them.
Strong and unapologetic
At the same time elegant and true
So don’t you let anyone or anything
Snatch that title from you.
