It required half-a-life
to find the self within,
the voice inside,
her self-compassion.

The reward that followed
was cruel ignorance,
the hatred of others,
blind vengeance.

Her assigned role was taking her soul,
creating a victim,
but once a survivor she'd become a fighter
and would never be a victim again.

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
