They – Author Vee Townsend


They tell her she can’t

She’ll show them she can

They tell her she “Isn’t”

She’ll show them she “Is”


They’ve tried to push her down

She keeps rising

They’ve tried to hold her back

She keeps coming


You’re not good enough

You’re not strong enough

You’re not smart enough

To them…she’s deaf, blind and dumb


But SHE knows she can

SHE knows who she is

SHE is more than good enough

Stronger than they are

Smarter than they’ll ever be


SHE is a survivor…and that’s something THEY will never understand!

Excerpt from the book “Imperfect Paths”


Foreword . . .

How many people can say they have not walked on rough terrain to get to where they are today? Most of us have been bruised and beaten to find out who we really are within; to find joy in this life we have been given. We are flawed beings with imperfect paths, and those turbulent journeys can either make us or break us.

It is easy to blame our past wrongs, the people who have tarnished our trust, and the bad bets the world throws at us. But we still hold the power to make a choice to become better than the humans who hurt us; to be the voice of change by learning from the experiences which have attempted to break us. Along the many roads traveled, the decisions we make will determine who we are to become.

Take a moment to walk in another’s shoes. The poets here have opened their Pandora’s Box, not to release the personal demons that taunt or once to keep them confined, but to share how to sever the weights one is shackled to.
