TREASON / Poem by Marija Najthefer Popov

Poem by Marija Najthefer Popov
I was:
a lady and simpleton
a queen and a maid
darkness and light
night and day
insomnia and peaceful sleep
lonely birch
and oak forest
rose and her thorn
water and thirst
bread and salt
disease and cure
summer and winter
heat and cool
laughter and crying
on knees
and on the throne…
But now I am
knight and ember ,
who leads my own
above mentioned subjects,
into battle.
The truth
forged my shield
while crying;
and the sword
by love and treason
were forged for me.
