Warrior

It was in battle
that she came into herself.
Born anew
from the blood she spilt.
She became a warrior,
a legend.
Then
the wars ended.
With no battles to be fought,
she lost herself.
She hung up her sword
and walked away
from the battlefield
she called home.
She tried to go back,
but it was too late.
Reviled
as a monster
everywhere she turned.
There was no where left
to run.
While there was a place
for her as a girl,
she had already become
a warrior.

Prompt: Warrior
