The 27th Portrait

She was the first.

She was bold.

She was kind.

She was there to do the job.


She faced bullies and egos

She shone and showed strength

She paved the way.

She cracked the glass.


She was the last.

The last we could respect.

The last that focused on The Job

The last that gave us hope.


The 27th portrait carefully constructed

Reflecting the truth

Reflecting the power

Reflecting the possibility


The 27th portrait reminds us

We can reclaim our strength

We can rise above the petty

We can choose better.
