A child of God
formed from the dust of earth and stars.
Silent songs of an ancient people
whisper within her very being, swim in her DNA,
stirring the leaves of elusive memories
with every heartbeat, every breath.
Beneath the quiet strength,
behind soft brown eyes with a steady gaze,
exists a powerful force of tenacity,
determination and gentle grit,
tempered with compassion.
Reflective… quiet… fiery…
