Queen



She stood with regal bearing, after all she was a queen. 
She wielded more power than anyone else around her except of course the King beside her. 
Yet she had no freedom to move, no voice of her own. 
Her world was black and white. 
She was a mere pawn, a carved piece of wood.

  7. Thought provoking and powerfully woven tale. It's sad on how power and status fetters growth and freedom.
