She wore endurance as a cloak.
Tried ever so sorely and wrongly,
She committed all to the Vindicator.
In her resolute quietness, she spoke volumes.

For her ardent disparagers,
Her payback was tireless hours of intercession.
As she stoically embraced undeserved tribulations,
She gained character, wisdom, and tranquility.

Who dares put out the brilliance of a star?
Her sublimity resonates evermore in the
darkest patch of the night.
Though seared with scars,
her stellar virtues are glaring,
illuminating hearts and inspiring minds.

She can’t feign ordinariness,
Even if she hides behind her own shadow.
Detached from a frenzied world,
She derived her essence from heavenly fire.

Oh, had they known the fount from hence she drank,
they would not have, in malignity,
ensnared their own souls
in a bid to put out her luminous radiance.
They have murdered sleep through their ignoble gestures.

Behold the star as she abides in the firmament!
Purified by the trials and tribulations,
she stoically endures and thrives.
The sky may be bespangled with twinkling stars,
but her brilliance stands out in luminary distinction.
