Selenia Hamilton Poems

I Am Selenia Hamilton

I have earned this
By my own hand
All mine by right
Not by gift

I walk anew
No longer warrior
But teacher and mentor
My honor is law
My charges my children
To protect and nurture
At every cost

I will keep them safe
This I swear
Upon my honor
My life has been lived
Their life has begun
Never again
Will I let a young one die


Warrior Child

Raised by the sword
Because magic
Was not her gift
Wildest of her generation
Untamed at birth
Getting into scrapes
Among the woodland beasts

On the day she left
Her family said good-bye
She shed her older form
To earn her fame
And be known by all
Sword held high
The Mercenary Queen ruled


Check out Selenia in Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero and Legends of Windemere: Prodigy of Rainbow Tower.  Each book is for .99 cents.


About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Brilliant. Truly, brilliant. The more I get to know her the more I like her. Shall I chop off all me hair and go kick some arse? It sounds so tempting.
