Women of Windemere: Kellia Poetry

I Am Kellia

I am strength
Show no weakness
Shed no tears
I must be the pillar
That others need

I will never play the fool
Or call such one a friend
My allies shall be true
Serious and strong
To suit my rules

I let no one in
My truth is mine
To keep within my breast
Though I feel a thawing
From one so noble

                                                                                                                                                                                                

Forced to Grow

A harsh birth
Met with mother’s death
Raised by a fearful father
Protected
Shielded from the world
By walls of every kind

She found ways
To slip outside and play
A greater strength
Than her father knew
Allowing her freedom
Behind his fretful back

Still she grew
More among adults
Than those she could call friend
She matured
At a rapid pace
Leaving childishness behind

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    I love “I must be the pillar / That others need.” She’s powerful, but I can’t help feeling sad for her too.
