BIW

tethered

furious
gale force winds
threatened to snap her lines..
strengthened by her anchors
encouraged by unknowns
she remains
shaken and stirred
as always determined

the resolve evident in her gaze
audible in her silence
present in perseverence
her fierceness
a palatable result of afflictions
sensationalized
serious
scarring

jack hammers unearth the soil;
a bitter bile
reality
difficult to swallow
impossible to ignore

alas, courage forged by fire unfurls
she stands once again
undaunted
fearless
undeterred vision
unobscured heart

the winds
they threatened to shatter and destroy
but she is tethered
to the strong
she remains
aggressive

Bold - Incandescent - Woman
