VOID


A woman of grace, courage, and wisdom
Of beauty, brilliance, and wit
She was a dreamer, young, and passionate
Of things, she could do with great skill.

A woman of attitude, elegance, and strength
Of confidence, dignity, and kindness
She was a fighter, fervent, and optimistic
Of things, she loved doing.

A woman stuck in the clutches of discrimination
Of gender, judgment, and patriarchy
She was a woman, muted, and restrained
Of things, she could achieve in life.

A woman cold, morose, and dejected
Of society, rejection, and impediment
She was a corpse, dead, and hopeless
Of things, that meant life to her.

Void.
