Hypolyta's Lament

What use is speed?
When even Atlanta had to cheat herself
To get a man.
Strength?
Bears the weight of a heavy heart
And you’ll have that.

If I were to loose a breast
I could scarce be less feminine
And still unable
To draw Cupid’s bow.

Never a Nymph
And while for my own sake
I would not change
My warrior’s arms
Comfortable legs
And the height that lifts me
Above the multitude
For those lithe limbs,
Yet…

I keep finding that
The world loves an independent woman
From a distance.

    the world loves an independant woman

    from a distance.
    – ace! know that feeling…
    flows very well, too.
