She Is

​This girl catches the fire

She laughs at the flames

Doesn’t mind when it hits her back

Still she says

Still she stands

People shake their head

Want her to be 

Something she can not be

She has many names

She has many faces

She is mother

Sister

Lover

Keeper of your soul

A wild heart

A free mind

That refuses to be torn apart

(Jesse Abundis)
