I’m A Shero, I’m A Survivor [#Poetry]

He tried to destroy her self with the acid attack, but he had not accounted for her inner strength that made her find the beauty inside.

He thought he could wipe out her beauty

And break her courage

By throwing acid on her pretty face

But he is ignorant of the fact

That her beauty lied in her heart and courage in her soul.

She slept silently in pain they said.

She was just in the process of making her heart and soul stronger than before

Because she knew that the world would show her pity and disgust

For the melted face now she bore

She knew she has to face them all with a smile

And fight with the world for justice.

Yes, she needed to make her heart and soul stronger than ever before

For, the monster had to be destroyed

And faith in humanity had to be restored

Victim they said she is, with a grim on their face.

Survivor she emerged as, with a grin on her face.
