****determination - Poem by Meggie Gultiano

Determined was she to finish the race,
a little girl of just four;
born alas without a left foot
but Jelian has so much more.
With courage few could understand;
strength of character beyond her years,
she took part in sports events for disabled folk,
receiving the loudest of audience cheers.

For other disabled people
laden with personal doubt and despair,
she provides them with inspiration,
encouraging them to dare.
The epitome of innocent, child-like faith,
determination and true grit,
this gallant girl fought on and on
blessed with plenty of spirit.
She is Jelian.
