And so, she sat there patiently,
though in tears and intense pain–
knowing the wind knocked out of her
would ultimately be a gain.
The trial was making room for
the life she was always supposed to have.
She was learning the valuable lesson
of how warriors come to be brave.
While Queens are a product of nature–
at birth the foundation was laid–
warriors are shaped through trial and error,
and through death and rebirth, they are made.
