Poem: Nothing Keeps Her Down

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Summary of poem

Nothing keeps her down is about her not letting detours block her way. She might struggle for a little bit but she regains her strength. Then she starts walking the path again. She has a stubborn attitude and down to earth ways. She is determined to succeed discovering her dreams.

"Nothing Keeps Her Down"

Strolling down lost paths,
overcoming adversities
not letting detours block her way.

Stumbling into dead ends,
struggling for a moment
regaining her strength
to walk the path once more.

Stubborn attitude,
down to earth ways
nothing can stand in her way.

Determination to succeed,
waiting for the moment
she discovers her dreams.

"The Climb" by Miley Cyrus
