A Myriad Heroines


Tonight sheer ecstasy and bliss, first discovered Strictly
Come Dancing, I lose myself in those dancing heroines,
Vin Diesel in the movie XXX stole the show encouraging
the individual to make a difference, Wizards of Waverley
Place had Alex experience romance in a magical journal

I have many brilliant stories also, never featuring me, there
is a myriad heroines - based on the stories I loved when I
was a kid, books I like get assimilated into it - every noble
thought integrated in a kaleidoscope that encompasses
more than this universe, after this great Sunday night

I am convinced whatever sacrifice or endurance tomorrow
requires, I am safe in an inner bauble of wonderful dreams,
need not send my own self anywhere as an infinite number
of heroines can go all over the world to do the magnificent
things suggested by myths, parables and legends

    Imagination transports us. Imagination empowers us. I'm currently reading Anne of Green Gables, wherein the main character, Anne, embellishes her life with sparkling imagination. Imagination becomes for her a primary coping mechanism. I glean a similar message from your poem, A Myriad Heroines. It's a potent message. (Report) Reply
