This person's mantra seems to be keep fighting no matter what you are going through. Even a moment of happiness is better than nothing at all. The first half of the poem is beautiful with it's meaning. Though she is old that doesn't break her spirit at all. The ironic thing here is that people usually fear death, but she faces it head on. But no one can feel what anyone else is feeling inside and no one can see the demons inside, but the way you wrote this, even that doesn't shatter her confidence. She is not what she was in her youth, but that doesn't matter to her at all. Because she still gets up, she is a shell of her former self. I love this poem for it's meaning and character details. You detail the fact that she is older, with the wrinkles and face. I love the imagery. 5/5
