She was born a phoenix;
Magnificent, strong, fiery and free.
She treaded limitless paths, off on her adventurous spree.
Akin to ripples spread her contagious energy,
She was born for greatness, perhaps someday a tall effigy.

Her fearless mother always taught her to fight, no shedding tears,
On she went conquering her fears and overtime peers.
The renowned grandpa taught her to master all chores,
