Girl against the world


Do you have fire they asked?
Do you breathe that air?
The one that's needed today.
To make you a successful heir.


Are there types I asked?
Stumped by the lot.
Yes, they said glumly, 
Tell us what have you got?


Do you have the passion, 
To take what it needs?
A drive for success,
A hunger like greed?


I am but a child,
I said, small and shy.
You'll crumble in a day,
They said, should you even try.


For no person is spared,
In this race we call life.
You've got to face it all,
The elation,  the strife.


What happened after,
Wouldn't you like to know?
I'm still a learner in life. 
I'm taking things slow.
