On her knees,
she found her voice
in her fists.
"No, no, no, no, no!"
She'd not surrender,
become a prisoner
to the inadequacies
they told her
she had.

Listening no more,
she shed they're
invisible prison.
It couldn't hold her,
not when she
her value,
her free will,
and their manipulations.

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.
