Indomitable

“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”-Mahatma Ghandi

Indomitable

by Carmen H Gray

Piss and vinegar

That’s what little girls like me 

Are made of

At least that’s what

My father always told me

How dare you flaunt

Your sassiness

And buck the rules

And challenge the paradigm

How beautiful

And indomitable

You are

My daughter
