This Woman Has True Grit

Let me tell you about a good friend of mine.  When she has something, she wants to do she goes out there and does it. Being achievement-oriented with long term goals she’s full of confidence and creativity. No matter what the situation is, good or bad, Charli will fight for what she believes in for herself and others.  This gal has moxie and has true grit.


What’s true grit to you

Someone fighting with their might

For you and for me


Courageous as hell

Never giving up or in

Supportive to all

This was written for a challenge over at Carrot Ranch. In 99 words, no more, no less write about “true grit”.

  2. This is a wonderful tribute to Charli, Susan. I love your acrostic poem too. It would look lovely on a poster.

  4. I’m flying around this week, my first midterms, writing scenes, getting my home looking more like one, keeping Todd in line, and having a spoken flash word performance and I’m feeling flighty, all over the place. And then I read this. I’m grounded and humbled. Thank you, my dear friend! This gives meaning to it all! My grit sees your grit! Hugs!
