I Feel The World
by Rhiannon Keneally
Age Group: Adult
Being an Artemis
It is hard to remain upon a pedestal,
To be gazed upon,
No one can,
And no one shall
I feel the world,
Grasp it in my arms,
But the world does not return it in like
It is said
No good deed goes unpunished,
But that is not true
The world is brutal, demanding
It will beat upon you,
Wear you down
Until you collapse beneath its weight
No Atlas can help shift it:
You become Atlas,
Forever trying to hold the earth,
Forever grappling with it
And so I hide
I hide in the wilderness
Of my imagining
For no one loves an Artemis
And would do her harm,
Should they wish to press
The weight down
An Artemis never has friends
