to your indomitable spirits,
for standing on the grounds,
unfazed by the surrounding situations.

You have your struggles,
seen failures, or some troubles,
the road had never been easy,
towards the goals, you have dreamed.

to your accomplishments,
invisible battles that you fought,
for the path of your success.

There were days, you were heartbroken,
felt the anguish and disappointments,
yet, you overcome these setbacks,
to rise again, with your courage.

to your smiles and laughter,
that you allowed, when tears dried up,
living behind painful memories.

For, now you are free,
of the restraints of your past,
and a bright future awaits,
along with accolades...
For you, dear valiant one.
