Queen

Queen

A Poem by Nwang

Underneath the open sky
I rule these naked lands

A nation created by my forefathers
A kingdom forged by its people

Men have spilled their blood here
Lives have been lost over it.

Some tried to conquer it,
Some tried to destroy it.

Yet it still stands today
Unbroken,unbound,unconquered

In this land of Kings and Gods
Men have followed men

Yet I a girl in armor
Leading my army ahead

My hair is cut short
My skin no longer pale white

My hands are bruised by the sword
My heart hardened by the wars

I am no longer ignorant
I do not require a king

The battlefield is my dance floor
And my sword is the one who sings

I am the Queen 
And this is my kingdom

My name is Snow White
And I command my legion.

Your poem is well-stated & imaginative . . . many places the descriptions POP! ("my hands are bruised by the sword") . . . I can feel the defiance growing thru-out the poem, until the finale declares the identity of this narrator. I enjoy the creativity of people who write the antithesis of some long-accepted fairytale.
