The Song of Athena



I touched my belly and felt my will. 
It was weak, fluffy, and powerless. I felt anger. Why am I so weak? Why can’t I achieve autonomy? Why can’t I CAN?
I looked around and I felt His will. It is strong, iron-like, and omnipotent. I felt courage. He is not weak. He is Almighty. He can do what I CAN’T.
I felt His will in my bones because I am His daughter.
I am the Blue one with Red skin.
I am my Father’s Daughter.
I am Shiva’s Daughter!
