Medusa

I am medusa
Beauty became monster
Idolized to being destroyed
Silenced by a patrilineal society
For being a victim in a gruesome way
Shamed violently in a sacred place
Banished by the gods
Condemned to walk the earth
As grotesque and with serpents for a hair
And anyone who gaze upon her
Is forever turned into stone.
