Lady Royal- Sathyani Kotakadeniya

By Sathyani Kotakadeniya

They taunt her for being a girl   

A repetitive, disgusting sequel  

The world is a disastrous place  

Where no one is really an equal. 

 

They thin out opportunities  

Saying men make better leaders  

They create barriers; disunities 

So silently she walks the wire. 

 

They have got it all twisted  

She’s a rose crowned with thorns  

If they choose to undermine her  

They’ll find themselves growing horns. 

 

Silent warriors do exist  

She will reign when they least expect it  

It won’t matter then if their hatred persists 

When she steps on to become Lady Royal.
