A Woman's Tale

I sigh breaths of fire

And spark static from my core

I leave ashes where I stand

And singe this very floor


I swallow knives and blades

And let them ravage from within

My veins are forged from steel

And my blood boils in my skin


My lips are broken at the seam

But my spirit is strong

Apparently I’m incapable

But I will prove you wrong


I am unstoppable

No force can hold me down

I’ll adorn my hair with daises

While I wear a thorned crown


I was meek at first

Unsure of my own wit

Until I realized my power

And refusal to submit
