The way my month has gone (health/mental health issues/totaled car but thank god we are alright), I need a reminder that I am in fact strong. This poem that popped up in my feed was perfect:

Love Letters from Helen of Troy 
by Elisabeth Hewer

you always feared god-born achilles 
the most of all your fellows.
his divinity wove him taller,
better, quicker, stronger.

well here's a secret for you:
my father was a swan,
and the monthly blood on my thighs 
is two-parts ichor.

you think achilles was of impressive descent?
touch me one more time.
maybe it's time we found out
what the daughter of the mightiest god
can do.

look to your kingdoms.
i am coming for them all.


And another... )
