I may not ever be able to lift those weights
the way your buffed up body can,
nor could I last longer in a fight
without having the same lethal force
behind every one of my punches.
But I’ve spent a thousand years
honing the muscles in my mind darling,
a thousand years of suppressed emotions
building up inside me.
Under your rule, I was deemed as the weaker species
here I am after all this time,
still holding my ground.
I’ve shed a million tears
under the tyranny of your insecurities,
taking every good with bad,
being nothing more than a soft cushion for you to lean back on
when you’re done with showcasing
But the time has finally come now.
Watch me as I lift the burdens of this dark world
with the sheer force of my will
and watch me as I step onto the stool
carved with the innumerable sacrifices
made by my sisters throughout history
and watch me love,
as I finally
to your height.
