Female Warrior

Poetry By: Khano

I hate summaries...haha so how about, the essence of the story lies in its words? It is only you, the reader, that could unearth the different depths and messages a poem could possibly convey.

The Female Warrior

Who. Am. I?

I'm the girl you observe

marching through the molten black turmoil

with a torch that ignites the scope of dark

burning a fire from the depths of her soul

that ingests corruption.

People dwell in their pits of hallucination

extant in empty lives filled with empty desires

Nomads in a world of deception.

The people that refer superiority over God himself

How their scientific predictions can determine an earthquake

yet come the time of disaster they are consumed like ants in its phenomenae.

Their vision so blinkered, their minds so vacant

Love? You say you know love?

Ruminate this my friend...

You have found love in wild sexual exploits

you have found love in crimson roses and romantic exchanges

wooed and charmed by superficial gestures.

But this love that has struck flame within me

Is a raging inferno...yet a soothing zephyr

A love of wisdom

much richer, much deeper

beyond the narrow horizon through which your eyes perceive

I'm the girl whose blood runs with determination like electric charges

You depend on slips of meaningless paper to attain your quest for happiness?

Nay. I will walk with a humble gaze, and allow happiness to envelope my heart.

I will walk in rags and patches if need be

but I will never fall prey to the devious hawk of material.

Whilst you cling to life O' Misguided Friend

to your face-lifts and derma masks

I will live, learn and breathe

and when my time is up

Wallahi, I will await my Creator... with a smile.

So who am I?

I'm the woman of delicate steel

A body finespun with equal fragility

and equal strength

I'm The Female Warrior

on the battlefield of life...
