Rough but a worthy effort in the mold of women like Bradamante and Eowyn. There are few spelling errors which spell check wouldn't catch (for example, you have steal instead of steel). But the poem is a wonderful reminder that no role or accomplishment in life should be limited to gender, culture, class, etc.
We unfortunately put far too many artificial limitations on our endeavors, even in the modern day.
I was not expecting the ending, yet it fit perfectly. It sort of sounds like the Lord of the Rings Triligy ... the last one to be exact. I totally admire this poem. Each stanza creates a mind-washing image. It's amazing. Wonderful Job.
To know that someone as talented as you has discovered me I'm thankful, and also to have now discovered you and I read this poem...I am forced to laugh. This particular piece drew me right in as thoroughly as I would imagine who knew it would everyone. Superb/
Heh, I liked it. I was curious about the line that ends with "win." It seemed like the poem stuck with a specific rhyme scheme until that was thrown in. Of course, if it were intentional, ie there to add emphasis to the importance of the victory, then that's fine :-)
I am a big fan of the lord of the rings trilogy and this is a really well written poem that actually reminded me of the return of the king when Eowyn took off her helmet afterwards. Keep up the good work
