There was a time

When she would not dare

To speak up her mind

She would not share

Ideas, that in their singularity

Could have stirred up a storm

She would not have found solidarity

In going against the norm.


She saw the world around her

Changing at a reckless pace

She remained a silent spectator

In a rapidly declining phase.

Until one day she took stock

Of all that her loved ones had lost

The revelation came as a shock

This is what her passivity had cost..

If only she had interjected

If only she had been brave

May be her ideas would be accepted

May be something she could save.


Not all was lost, she realized

She still had novel solutions

She could experiment, she surmised

Not thinking of retribution.

With newly found audacity

In waters new she took the plunge

With steely resolve and tenacity

Self-doubt she did expunge. 

And then, to her pleasant surprise

She gained so much more

Than what she expected from the prize

Prompting her to further explore

The limits of her recalcitrance.

She let her ideas take flight

And marched past every resistance:

She had finally learnt to fight!
