Word of the Day Challenge #101-Untitled Poem

Hand held
tears ignored
this is how it will be.
You shall submit.
You…..
shall say a word not
tumble to your knees.
Barter chip…..
lands
people
armies
barren your womb
it shall not be.
Disbelieving
you held not with tradition
only to discover
that time for some
has not passed.
A duty still done
a duty required
bend now
makes it easier
upon defile.
