once there was a warrior queen,
fighting strong, defeating the horrid and the mean,
a dress of blue and lips rose red,
instilled fear in hearts and love in head.
masked and proud, she fought so hard,
to find a place in a world so cold,
a life spent in agony was a secret well kept,
her only fears were alive when she slept.
the people despised the power she held,
told her they loved her when really they hated,
they plotted and planned in dark little corners,
unfair and unjust, no decent things thought of.
many years of stories and promises,
eventually unfolded and were no longer secrets,
to find instead of love she was despised,
she left the world to the peoples devices.
all alone, a smile on her lips
put her sword through her belly,
and with one last breath, the warrior whispered,
“you are all doomed, you will all end,
i will try no more, i’ll listen to no more lies.”
