Warrior Woman

She stood before her country’s enemies

Showing no mercy on her face

Hiding under a man’s appearance

As all thought she would bring just disgrace

 

She was told to wait quietly

To be one of the other housewives

Because it’s a man’s responsibility

To protect the weaker lives

 

Trained hard with men to be strong

To be part of a great army

Proving she was worthy enough

To save her country

 

She had rewritten the history

With the blood of their rivals

Showing that a woman’s strength

Secures our survival.

 

She saved a kingdom

Showing she had no fear

Fighting with honour

With her warrior sisters near

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
