A Goddess's Plight

Wed, 07/10/2019 - 02:53 -- dorankc

Medusa wasn't cursed

she was protected

her Goddess wanted to give her the world

 

but when men take without mercy

Athena did what she thought best

even if Medusa was hurting

 

when men want to be on top

because they're bested by a woman

they take as they please and don't stop

 

Athena didn't care for Poseidon

she wanted to care for her devoted

so in her "curse" she won

 

don't say the Greeks weren't right

because in this world you either give your all

or you become a symbol

because no matter what, he won't win this fight
