A female's life can be tough, but it is up to one to turn it up.
A changellge: Describe yourself in 25 words.

Envied, scoffed, and rapped

a stolen beauty refuses to fall from grace 

with her undying breath 

she wishes to turn the reaper into her petals.

And turn your tears into pearls - Kite Runner allusion. I wrote my 25 word challenge poem - it makes more sense if you know that I've taken in a new abandoned cat. She is really sweet.
