Her art still holds a place in our hearts,
Mexico’s dynamic feminist,
My verses pay tribute to Frida
Her life was filled with great pain and grief,
Serious injuries several
Caused Kahlo to portray her struggles.
She was her own muse for her famed works,
Iconic symbolic metaphors
Did depict her profound thoughts many.
