    Too strong , she was
    they said...confrontational
    they said she was
    not a wimp , not subject
    to be pimped, standing
    tall among the small
    ready to lift up or lay down
    those who are opressors
    or oppressed...She always
    gave her best!

    Too strong , she was
    they said...prone to get
    up in your face, bad memories
    to erase, not subject to
    societal rules , of not
    rocking the boat, not known
    to gloat, but known to challenge
    a system gone amuck...
    she didn't give a $#%#
    Long on survival skills
    She went through Marine
    Drills, escaped the lure
    of cheap thrills.

    Too strong, she was
    they said...not easily
    persuaded to change
    her mind, known to leave
    slow witted folks behind
    touching hearts and mankind
    Feeling Harriet's blood course
    through her veins...capable
    of more than just a sweet
    refrain...Shouting freedom's
    song...Too strong!
