You have always handled your misfortunes with bravery and grace. No Barbarian has ever fathomed your courage and often took your dignity and gravity for weakness and surrender.
Your wisdom is needed by all but accepted only by the few. You have been abused by others and by your own children but you still stand, poised, dignified. You are the womb of few but noble souls. May you prevail. May the Gods bless you. Thank you for your gifts and the unique glimpse into your soul, a soul I could never do justice to.
