Knights #wwwblogs

There were days

Our only armor

Was to paint our skin

Before striding

Into a battle

And the today

Where we might be hidden

Behind subtler paints

But no less

Ready for the battle

To be waged

Delicate and fierce

Whether slight or imposing

We entered a knighthood

Unspoken and ignored

Because warrior women

Could not be

Though every woman

Has a warrior living in a space in her mind

At the ready

For the moment

She must raise her hand

And conquer again ~ Caroline A. Slee
