She pride

her world

harsh realities

tiring dreams

voiceless screams

her world

fleeting fantasies

blissful dreams

pale moonbeams

her constitution strong

her edited life gone

the lioness within

her pride

still she seeks

equality

respect

we look for it

but we are blind

  5. I like the progression of seemingly contradictory states of mind, and how it builds up to a harmonious whole. Excellent take!
