She Made It ~ Yashoda Naidoo

This is for the girl
who has attended more
funerals than weddings,
introduced herself to more doctors than
friends, yet
she capable of winning more
battles than lose.

This is for the girl
who will always be
stronger than she looks
and braver than she thinks
This is for the girl
who tattooed an electric smile,
lightning laughter, and
candid charisma.

This is for the girl
with enough backbone
to face any challenge
and resist any monkey wrench
thrown at her.

This is for the girl
who is a hero
with super powers beyond
even her own comprehension.

This one is for the girl
who wakes up every morning
and fights off her demons
so well that the rest of us
fail to remember they
ever even existed.

This one is for you.
