Battle Lines | A Poem by Andromeda

Yes, I am screaming
in frustration, in rage,
in intolerable pain
A fight against man-world
and man-rules
Rules that create power
And against womanhood
power sustainer
that validates and glorifies
See me, hear me, know me —
the Outsider, I come to destroy
your well-cemented world
Hurl your mace, throw thunderbolts
I stand fearless, defenseless
Armour and shields I shun
A deep well of outrage
fortifies my spirit
Wounds bleed, tortures twist
Life breathe you suck out
Then my scream thunders
through your edifice
demolishing brick by brick.
