I warned you not to test my
I warned you not to test me thee.
I told this world in a quiet declaration,
I am just an ordinary woman,
With strength, you won’t believe.
I was calm as a sea,
Until you forged the storm.
Now, I can’t assure your return from this voyage, taking a ferocious form.
I told you,
I won’t give up until I reach my
I won’t stop until I attain my salvation.
You knew the kind of woman I was,
I wasn’t one of the pieces on the board,
I was the one, controlling and rolling
the movement of those pieces from a strong rope.
I was not prying for an insignificant battle,
I was the one, who hailed a war,
I was the one, who raised the army.
I was after all a mystery
fascinated with two things in life.
Victory or Death, with no middleman in between.
I’ll kiss whichever comes to me first,
Because I know the bowl will stay
So, whatever may come my way,
l’ll accept it with open hands, but l’ll fight till the very end.
So, let the history recall me as the one who refused to give up until her last breath.

♈My inspiration for this write up and attire is a tribute to all the brave-hearted, strong-willed and courageous woman, who existed on this earth and left their mark strong beneath our souls.
This one is particularly inspired by Latherga, a determined Viking woman or Shield-maiden, a female warrior from Scandinavian folklore and mythology.
