Strong Women Survive

Through the Generations

By Cheryl E PrestonPublished 5 years ago 1 min read

Resilience to persevere is in the DNA

They find the silver lining I each new day

They survive the trials that take others out

They have faith when those around them doubt

Pushing past failure they know how to thrive

Born with a will and determination to survive

Strength and honor runs through the bloodline

Never say never is their favorite line

They have the will and make a way

Ignoring those who tell them nay

Long life good health and strength they possess

Passed down from ancestors who didn’t settle for less

Up to each challenge they are fierce and bold

Feminine confident and sire of their goals

They move forward easily from grief and pain

Knowing I front of them is much to gain
