Be

be (verb) : exist, have existence.
Born with wings

in a place that is used to

being tied up in chains,

stomping on the ground of an ancient state that

has only experienced the cautious steps of scared men,

and roaring with a voice that sends shivers down the spine of

the wind that has carried only the desperate prayers of

hopeless saints;

she will make the world fall at her feet.

She will not rule, but lead.

She will chew out the evil from the stubborn ground and

scatter the pieces among the clouds

that will rain down the tears of joy,

as she walks among the mortals

with a heart made of gold and

a mind made of steel.

 

She will fight.

 

She will be.
