Owl Poetry & Prose

She Is

She is

Her mother’s eyes

Her father’s height

Her mother’s legs

Her grandma’s breasts

She is

Her father’s impatience

Her aunt’s diligence

Her grandma’s literary inheritance

She is

The woman you see

The loudest laugh

No one’s second, no one’s half

She is

The girl who fears sharks

Whose bite is nothing compared to her barks

She is the sensitive soul

Quiet in spirit, resilient, yet wandering

Lost in a world, hell bent on trying to shape her, trying to mould

She is

Smiling through her tears,

Trying to brush aside her fears

Searching for her true calling

Floundering not drowning, fighting not failing

She is

Yearning for much, longing to be

She is a fiery spirit

She is…
