If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

She’s got fire in her bones;

There is nothing that she owns;

And yet she rules everything;

Everything and anything.

She’s got fire in her bones;

Doesn’t care to fit the mold;

She will knock down every wall;

And she will surprise them all.


She’s got fire in her bones;

She’s too stubborn for atones;

Her temper will shake the ground;

Her beauty will make your heart pound.

She’s got fire in her bones;

Resilience like stone;

A voice that makes the birds sing;

An elegance that’s capturing.


She’s got fire in her bones;

Not afraid to be alone;

Fearless and unpredictable;

Often quite the spectacle.

She’s got fire in her bones;

She’s a bundle of unknowns;

Her strength is evident;

Her nomadic lifestyle prevalent.

Aw, what a shame. "Surprisingly good" is the best you've had to say about any of my work, so thanks!
