they call

she answers

they curse her name

she’s tries to stifle

the chatter

while forced to accept

justification for

the disrespect

and walk through life

without regret

for accepting

that she was to be considered

and allow

herself to be called

anything less than

your majesty


or beautiful being


was the good girl

who was never seen

and taunted

like a bad girl

so she

became the defiled being…
