Had enough crying
Had enough complaining
Got to stand up
Got to be a woman
Unbeaten by tragedy
Won’t die with pain
Meant to bear the aches
Conceiving a child
In midst of pain
An ultimate joy
On arrival of ones kin
So nothing can beat a woman
As she can stir her pain
So here I am a woman
Unbeaten by tragedy

I am unsure of your tragedy but your words harken sadness, and I am sorry my friend.

heard this somewhere,
I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an' pretend
'cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again

You were always strong. This seems a sad poem, though, my friend.

That is the spirit of happiness. Do not let "downers" get to you.

How are you?
