she came to the convention

she came to the convention

she came to the convention
determined to play
she would be
a queen
an alien
a monster
an adventuress
a superheroine
a superhero
she would come
and she would come to play

the haters were there
waiting for her
ready to destroy her
to tear her down
to tear her up
to make her regret
she was ever born
much less what she chose to be

she wore scares
scars representing
something far worse
than the haters
could produce
scars that proudly proclaimed
something had taken a swing at her
and she faced it
and faced it down
so nothing the haters said
could ever touch her
because she had been touched
yet remained untouched

the haters tried to hate
but how can hate affect
someone who doesn’t
even acknowledge
you exist?
