Medusa

Medusa,

oh so beautiful!

radiating beauty,

a mere reflection,

of male gaze,

curse, shame and monstrous.

Controlled, yet untamed,

beauty unto conquerable,

curbing her assertion & sexuality.

Complete distortion.

A false sense of agency.

Fearless,

She shines through,

a face of free spirit.

(Poem by: Anisha Dutt)
