across death’s divide

across death’s divide
many battles she has fought
some she lost, some she won –
victories that were dearly bought

through countless days ‘n nights
she duelled with love ‘n hate
stubbornly denying
the existence of capricious fate

pages on the calendar turned
Mother Earth continued to spin
she grew older – more adept
at takin’ it on the chin

across death’s divide
she continues to handle her biz
squarely between who she should be
‘n the person that she is
