I

By
More by this author
I was born from Aphrodite herself
The heavens were my playground
I have received the Golden Apple of Discord
I am flawed perfection

I swam in the Nile with Cleopatra
Two philosophical women exchanging intellects
The water bends to my will
I am untamed royalty

I stood with Joan of Arc
In a war of femininity
I was burned at the stake
But my vivacity is inflammable
I am indestructible fragility

I chatted with Elizabeth I
In celibate solidarity
I defeated the Spanish Armada
Without breaking a single nail
I am independent helplessness

I ate cake with Marie Antoinette
At the height of the French Revolution
The guillotine rejected my splendor
I am humble vanity

I wore diamonds with Marilyn Monroe
Adorning them with grace and style
I was an iconic trailblazer
Left to blaze alone
I am doubtful confidence

I am extraordinarily simple
I am simply complex
I am boldly original
But I am nothing new…
