She – A Poem by Aditi Sharma

Power of women
She | Photo by Miguel Bruna

She was radiant like the sunshine,
And calm like the sea.
Yet she had darkness of the eclipse,
And wildness of the beasts.

Holding on to the silence,
She could sing melodies hymns.
Goodness she possessed,
Though she had committed sins.

She did not fear bloodshed,
But harmony she preached.
The princess never died
even after the warrior was revealed.

So she put down the crown,
And picked up the sword.
Wearing a winsome smile,
She walked through the storm.
