Brimming with Inquisitiveness ,
Ever so young at heart and prodding over new territories

Expressive in all sorts of emotions
Be it anger ,love or frustrations
A mother , wife and a daughter
But at the same time a Dreamer and an Achiever
Not willing to be confined in those boundaries
Always a free spirited individual
That is you … U are Unstoppable!!!
