Her bark is tough. Her hide is hard.
She has weathered it all, her resolve tough.
Some would say stubborn, strong-headed, strong-willed, annoying or just plain stupid.
But through the eye of the wise, she was simply completely beautiful.
Strong in her resolve, firm in her care, steady with love and stable of mind.
She was an epitome of perfection, black, proud and brave.
She is you.
She just needs to believe it.
