today

Yesterday I was everything;
Empress of all I surveyed.
The strength to
raise armies –
Conqueror
of nations.

Yesterday,
I was immortal.

Today,
I am nothing –
the warrior in me
defeated.
Left behind,
a husk of a woman –
a tormented soul
unable to raise even her head
from
this pillow,
Nor conquer the grief in
her chest.

There’s no fight left in me,
for today
I would gladly surrender
my kingdom
for the taste of just
one moment of
peace.
