To Age I am

To Age I am

A Poem by Amata Luna

An old soul and a young heart; what keeps?


To Age I Am...


Im an old soul in a young body, a young heart with an aging world

I am not really your simple lady, who prefer men with muskets but swords

Neither am I your damsel in distress, but I can fairly make you bloody

I can prick with heedless rules so be careful on the noose


Now I am not your dangling lady; not to be cuddled, played or fooled

I am neither a sampling honey; to be tasted, licked and drooled

Better be canny and funny the same

Just remember that rules apply to the game


Chase my skirts, run for my curls

Let your hand grab me, if you can come close

Fight me with your mind; its the battle against wit

Never challenge a lady; she might be your trick


Do not mind the trees that bars you

Let the running all began

Never mind the shallow rivers,

Getting wet is nothing much


Can you wield your sword with precision and care?

Can you arch your bow in the right path it was aimed?

Can you hit with your knuckles and stand up still?

If you can do it, sure Id be a lady in your care


Are your eyes speaking, do your ears feel?

Does your skin hears or your tongue barely stings?

Better be canny its a battle against me,

A battle when you win, youll be glad in all glee


So again I ask you will you be brave enough?

To the ends of the world will you see whats been tough?

If you can be my knight, never expect me as weak

I may be your strongest, your adversary to speak

Hi guys, I think it's been a long time since I've written something. Decided to write a poem out of my movie preferences. I pretty like history centuries past modernity. Muskets and swords? Yeah, they're a love for me.

I relly liked this poem, it was strong and fearless, and impowering as well. Please check out my poem, "I Am This Woman" tell me what you think. It was hard for me to write because it was my feelings about my life and health. It also dealt with the losses of my mother and miscarriages of my children

I was hooked to this poem, so when it finally ended I was bummed because I couldn't read more! That's how good it was! :)
Thanks for the very mystical poem, Amata!

I write when something brings me to it. I write when somebody pushes me into it. I write when things are sad and when things are not. I write when I'm inspired. To inspire, I write. To share is to wri.. more..
