by Rocelin Jimenez
An eagle in the sky
soaring to heights too ambitious for her
learned to fly as a late bloomer, but worked to catch up
She has a hunger for improvement
She’s a beast ready to devour her prey
and ready to combat challenges in her way
She won’t let anyone take what’s hers
She has goals
and a passion worth fighting for
never fazed by the put-downs of others, she works twice as hard
She will fly to the sun
and then to the moon
until she makes it into the stars
