It’s a Man’s World

I hid in plain sight behind the stone structures.

I knew they wouldn’t allow me to take part in the Olympic games. No female had ever stepped foot inside these walls. From an early age I wanted to be an Olympian. I watched my father battle against his peers in the discus throwing event. I learnt by his side, and was better in every way than some of the boys I grew up with.

Today, with my female form hidden behind a warriors helmet, I won the gold medal. I was fearless, and not afraid to fail. As I held the gold medal in my hand, I couldn’t stop smiling.

My next move, and the medal would be taken from my grasp, but I was determined to show I was just as good. As I took away my helmet, my long hair escaped its bonds.
