She Contravened

Every occasion when the world pushed her
to follow the societal norms,
she contravened such thought

And doesn’t matter
how rough the gale was,
she remained floated
gracing an inspiring smile
like a bobbing buoy

The universe disowned her,
the world outcasted her being,
but no matter how tough
the circumstances were,
she didn’t deviate from her stanch

Slowly, with few steps at a time,
She surged ahead,
and she formed her own clan
defined by her terms

  1. The Lord tests us to truly live the life given, and to spread our brilliant wings into the beauty of living!! So many people worry too much about what others may be thinking, and then lose sight of their own brilliance. Your poetry has taken on a new light. Observance is key inspiration.The bringer of succulent fruit!🌎✌️
