    Somehow she felt, the battle was lost
    Across the planes she began to cross
    The last journey of space and time
    The vista plateaus within her mind
    Sacred sanctuaries where she could find
    Peace from the madness of the civilized
    A matrix of captured imaginations
    Where living was domestication
    And power was force and fornication
    From an altar of Alien Gods

    Maybe it had been written that day
    As constant vigilance wore away
    The ability to open up her heart
    Beloved purpose was her part
    In Life’s great matrix design
    But finally she resigned
    Herself that no one wanted
    Her love, the last of her kind

    Every one of her progeny
    Had faced the same destiny
    She wondered how this could be
    Surrounded by the enemy
    With no protector for her cubs
    No room to birth her love
    Panther medicine foretold
    Of children being told
    It’s okay to sell the soul
    For the fame of Gods so cold
    And her anger became despair
    What resources could she prepare?
    To battle those that would dare
    To endanger their life
    Before their lungs had taken air

    Her suffering held no end
    Each time she made a friend
    Old wounds would ache and send
    Memories etched in betrayal
    From her attempt to ascend
    Back to reality back to life
    Back to the state of divine mind
    Back to the ether before there was time
    Back to the comfort of darkness
    Before there was light

    Her eyes stung with tears salt water strong
    Like a banshee she screamed for all that went wrong
    Unwritten story and unheard songs
    Is why she felt she hadn’t belonged
    To this place of machines
    And foreign things
    That wanted to make her crazy
    Enough to leave her baby
    In the arms of the system
    And create another victim
    Instead of warrior resistance
    That her genes insisted
    Carried the love of royalty
    To have faith in loyally

    Water people had been introduced
    On canvas, in dreams & poems produced
    Describing the heavens and the hells
    And the directions that each would spell
    Foretelling the choices she would face
    Along the paths of her chosen fate
    Urging her to follow her heart
    And ascend to their arms
    Where at last she would chart
    The path of the planets and the stars
    Like she did so long ago
    In places so very far
    From the processing of huemanity
    Where captivity feeds insanity

    It is the kicking in her womb
    keeping distance from the tomb
    But she knows her time
    is coming soon,
    considers the cycle of the moon
    The time will come when sacrifice
    Will make it better for his life
    And pave his way with little strife
    For this she concedes, the life of her seed
    And prays for strength to succeed
    If only for him, for her battle was lost
    Sadly, the planes she began to cross

    Such a vivid account of the panther, carrying the pain and strain as we do, praying for mercy during her journey when the weight gets too heavy. Your verses are crisp and draws the reader in poetess.
