Esther was thy name
a timid and shy girl
who met with a fatal accident
and suddenly rose to a new fame

A new fame when started finding her voice
Amid all the chaos and noise
Slowly, gradually taking in strife
she came to terms with her life

She has an orthopedic disability
enduring a limited locomotion
she struggled to put a brave face
upon all her conflicting emotion

E for emotions ruled
E for Esther's life
E for for emotion fooled
E for Esther survive

E for everyone
started talking about Esther
that how would she live
a life thereafter

Esther said nothing
but winked out a smile
She was mentally determined
if not physically agile

E for Everest, was
Esther's dream
E for Every breath in Esther
E for Echoed it, it seem

For obstacles never stop
the ones who has faith
Esther will scale the mountain
The tall mountain of Everest

Here's hoping all Esthers a success
and wishing for their dreams to come true
Women you are known by your strength
That sets you above the mundane you.
