Unsung Hero

When women become warriors,
They wear their hero badges on their sleeves.
Mucking it out in the bloody trenches.
Covered in anonymity.
Battling courageously.
Brave, brave, hearts.
Giving their lives.
ALL their lives.
For love.
Fighting for their families.
This mystery called marriage.
Submission.
Their swords bent in battle.
Their hearts gouged but singing.
The battle of the unsung.

The unsung hero.
