Wonder Woman

Poem by Emma Holmes, ’15.

Let me be Wonder Woman
Let me walk in blue and red
No loose hoodies or tattered jeans on this body
An Amazonian princess has nothing to hide

Let me be a Goddess
Let me conquer in high heels
Trade blonde hair for curls of glossy black
My headphones for a whip and crown

Let me be Diana
Let me destroy with red-lipped rage
Break bone with painted fingernails and calloused palms
Let me be strong
