She Stands Tall

She still stands,

Even when hell

Froze over; latching

Her dignity into

A clinched hand,

She remains tall

Regardless of the

Cards that were dealt

Within her deck,

Nonetheless, she

Ignites her chin

To the heavens

No matter how stormy

The clouds get,

This is why she’s a

Queen in the

Lions den
