I just want to let you know
that you are a signature of strength.
Through life’s ebb and flow
you do not sit in the citadel of stealth.
Like a city set on a hill
you bask in the ambience of beauty.
With your special skill
you resonate the radiance of reality.
You are a real and ready writer,
your words stir our soul like stimulant.
Like a firm and focused fighter
you seek to remain joyful and jubilant.
Abekshally, my sis-star,
you burn yourself to brew brightness.
Stronger than your scars,
you storm life’s stage with sweetness.

Dedicated to Mary Olaseni, a sister and pen friend whose bravery and beauty inspire me a lot. Her story, struggle and strength remind me of how the rainbow steps out in style of rainfall… Keep thriving dear.
