She achieved an incredible feat
At the fairly advanced age of sixty-four
By crossing ‘The Straits of Florida’
From Havana to Florida, Key West.
 
Skeptics by sheer temperament
Would always find reasons
To question or raise doubts
On such a milestone achievement.
 
Why can’t people simply take
This feat at its face value
To derive inspiration for all –
That we should never ever give up
And that we are never too old
In life to chase our dreams?
