Your Rebellious Royal Highness

Call me rebellious, I don’t care,
I think we can agree your region has been far from fair.
I’m done with nobility and selflessness,
I’m done being helpless, get ready for some recklessness.

Your palace is brutal and relentless,
Better to be a snarky rebel than keep up with this pretence.
Hear my pearls clatter and scatter on the floor,
You’ll find torn gown pieces when you open my door.

You’ll regret calling this princess petty and insignificant,
Bring out your shades because I’m going to be bright and magnificent.
I’ll be the colossal wave that knocks you down,
I’ll watch your undoing and annihilation wearing my tainted and bloody crown.

You wanted me to be the princess of submissiveness,
Soon you’ll bow down to me, your 'wicked' royal highness.
I’ll start the flare to your downfall,
Watch the colourful rebellion make you feel unimportant and small.

You’ve reigned for far too long,
Now hear your army sing against you unperturbed and strong.
When you see me leading all the rebellion and chaos,
I’m sure you’ll be able to smell the blood on the mosaic.

Your cruelty added fuel to the flame,
You started this game now watch me bring you to utter shame.
We’ll win the war because you’ll lose,
Because without your army to hide behind, you’re just an incompetent fool.

When the trumpets blast all over the country,
Being the coward you are, you’ll try to flee,
Never striking you that we’ll be ready to capture you.
When you are being taken prisoner, you’ll hear the celebratory musical renew.

When you’ll be taken to execution, you’ll see on the throne in my regal glory.
You’ll remember this letter and how I wrote it with pride and boldness,
Yours truly,
Your rebellious royal highness

About this poem

This narrative poem is inspired by YA dystopian novels, in which a princess rebels against her restraining and cruel royal family and sparks the flame to a country-wide revolution. A dedication to every person, with or without a crown, who rebels against toxic people and a symbol to not being confined in unhealthy environments and raising your voice.

Varnika Veronica

Greetings and salutations! Welcome to my world of words! I'm Varnika, a teenage voracious reader and author-in-the-making who is always up for a good challenge and always strives to seize the day. I have a monumental love for writing and I'd like to roll out the red carpet for you and invite you to venture into this universe built on words and honest-to-goodness and authentic feels established by yours truly. As my user name suggests, I'm a bibliophile and have a prodigious amount of love and admiration for books and the characters they hold within themselves. I prefer fictional novels, especially YA fantasy (mythology geek alert too!), although I try not to limit myself to one particular genre. Entering a fictional world and becoming a part of it is a feeling I'd never compensate for anything. The blissful feeling of drowning in a fictional world of fantasy, faeries, mythology and magic where each word is a step ahead in the journey is irreplaceable. Except for having ORD (Obsessive Reading Disorder), I also enjoy public speaking and as I love to embark on new endeavours and quests to fulfil my unrestrained and boundless curiosity, I recently decided to learn to play the ukulele. Going strong and steady yet, so wish me luck! Thank you for taking the time to read about me and I hope that whatever obstacles you may be facing right now becomes a testimony of your undeterred confident and sanguine attitude. "So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen." - 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 more…
