Finding Inner Strength

Dear Reader,

Today I have decided to share my poem with you that I wrote a few months ago. I hope the heroine in the story inspires you to face any obstacles in your life and to achieve your goals. Good luck!

The Queen of Pain

Gasping her last breath as she fell to the hard ground,
Screams of agony from within yet not a sound.
Innocence shattered, her sweet soul badly battered.
Yet to her evil enemies it never mattered.
Out of the fiery flames her ashes arise,
The Queen of Pain with dignity stands against lies.
Reborn from the agony and the terrible pain,
No more would she pour out teardrops of raging rain.
She embraced the pain…scarred with heavy dark blood stains.
Awakened, now she has become the Queen of Pain.
Her jealous enemies plotted her fatal fall.
Yet now their fearful backs are up against the wall.
Their poisonous razor-sharp daggers froze her warm heart.
She absorbed their wicked hate and poison so tart.
She turned it with angel’s hands to peace and love.
She let their evil pass out to raise her above,
For she had no time for petty games and lame lies.
She built the fortress around her soul without cries.
With dignity and integrity the pain she wore,
As crowns and jewels that shine brightly from her core.
Standing proudly their foul plots touch her nevermore.
Their voices die as the Queen remains forevermore.
