Inside us we carry that parallel self
A burial vault without any delf
A name well-known to West
And celebrated pride for East
Great warrior named Saladin
Was nemesis for crusades, world agrees
A naïve little girl
Always shy and scared
Hard knocks of life tamed her well
Self-reliant now and fully prepared.
I remind myself constantly
That learning from mistakes is a rare ability.
Have that strength to overcome trials
'We write to taste life twice..'
