My Legacy


My Legacy

Been alive for twenty years now
Never once have I stopped hoping
Almost drained, I took a vow
Never give up on a life worth saving

I took it upon myself to be a warrior
With a sword, an armor, and a prophecy
“One day, a girl will become the savior,
For she will slay the dragon, and fulfill her legacy.”

A large shadow falls upon me
As I climb the highest of hills, searching
For the dragon that has become my enemy
Only to find it swallowing the sun, waiting

Death flashes in its eyes
As it descends towards its prey
I shout, a battle cry
And raise my sword towards the fray

I fight for all the scars-
The ones inked on my skin
I fight for all the stars-
The ones shining from within

It was the day I won
Not just a battle, but the war
But the light left the sun
As blood poured from the skies
Still warm…

I’m 25, and I live in Lebanon. I’m an Interior Architect graduate with a minor in English. My hair is always a different color. I love cheese with some extra cheese. The gym is my natural habitat, and my car hosts the best concerts you'll ever attend. I love writing poetry, thoughts, and stories. My inspiration comes from my childhood memories, heartbreaks, and sometimes I like to imagine certain scenarios that are completely fictional or write a different ending to something that happened with me. It's like wishful thinking...
