For I Am Cleopatra

 

 

I am Cleopatra...

My life was about war, greed, and love,
I made many "regrets made many sins.
As you are reading my life...you may not understand.
How it all worked back then.

Some women from there own lip's call me whore.
When some women did not have much back then.
No respect for us.

Some simply adored me.
Some also feared me...
I was born in to royalty.
It is not my fault I was born in to greed and wealth.

For I am Cleopatra......

I was once a pharaoh a Egyptian ruler not Greek.
Some say i was out of control.

( Ha Men!)
So they ousted me.

And Made my brother ruler of Egypt.

Yes i confess i used..men to get my "Throne" back.
I did what i must to take back what was mine!!.

For I am Cleopatra ...


I arranged to wrapped my self in a carpet.
Like i was in bed with wine.
I rolled out of it.
To ask the man Caesar.
The Roman general to help me against my brother.

I fell for him OH i feel for him so...and his power.
And bring me back where i belonged.

For i am Cleopatra....

Yes i disrespected my farther & My brother.
As my farther tried getting away drowning in the Nile.
And the people who ousted me.
I killed them all.
Their blood running down the Nile still till this day the Nile the grave.

For i am Cleopatra


Egyptian law did not allow me to rule without a king i married my brother Ptolemy XIV.
But I still thought of ..and loved Caesar we secretly.

For several months of romance down the Nile. Showing Caesar how
the Egyptian people worshiped me.
Showing Caesar the power i had.
For i am Cleopatra.
The power of what women should have.Caesar had power him self.
We had allot in common.
Seeing him as pharaoh would be great.
But my love Caesar new it would be a hard one to achieve.
Such a man he is such a dictator.

He saw the marriage might unite Rome with Egypt.
Perhaps our son could eventually rule this great empire.
Oh my son Caesarian.

But his roman people didn't take to me to well. maybe i did get a little ahead of my self.
Calling my self the " new Isis". 
I didn't warship their gods.

For i am Cleopatra.

The senators of Rome were threatened by my Julius Caesar's power and popularity.
Almost like me.
And his change in Rome. without the approval of the senate.


I lost my husband at the hands of Rome.
On March 15, 44 B.C., Caesar was met by a mob of 60 senators who stabbed my love to death. I left Rome for the sake of me and the only thing i had left of his. My son.
I vowed for him to be ruler to be the king of Egypt.

We will rise again my love... For Egypt will Hear my voice echo threw the sands

For i am Cleopatra

 


-----------------------------
It is said that when Cleopatra heard of the disaster at the battlefield, she knew that all was lost. She went into her tomb (pyramid) along with her two handmaidens and a basket of figs which contained two wasps. Stories say that she did this because she would not know when she would die as she would be eating. She got bitten by the wasps in the shoulder

At the same time Mark Antony came to know that Cleopatra was dead. So he committed suicide. He was apparently bought to her tomb and died in her arms.

When Octavian came to know that Cleopatra had committed suicide he went to her tomb to see that for himself.

After Cleopatra died, the Egyptians proclaimed Caesarion as their Pharaoh. But Octavian thought otherwise. According to his famous statement at the time: "Two Caesars are one too many". He had Caesarion captured and killed.

Cleopatra's children by Mark Antony were taken by Octavia Minor and were taken back to Rome where she raised them.

Such was the end of the line of Pharaoh's of ancient Egypt.
She had gotten bitten by a poisonous snake (asp snake).

Cleopatra was a queen in every sense of the word. She used the appropriate weapons at the appropriate times, whether they be her armies or her charms. I think you captured her well.

I like the history concept mixed with poetry. Like Malik, I also learned something. Although I found a few errors (grammatical and spelling and such), it was a great read. 9/10. :)

This was very informative and I learned something new. I never really cared much about this story...I just knew the basic premise of it...now I know...and knowing is half the battle lol. This is good stuff. I will be back to read more in the very near(like today) future lol. :)

Very informative in historical facts and fiction. I must admit your poetic stanzas dramatically have a better flow the any high school to college history books I have read. Great job.

I love this poem. I also appreciate that you put that information at the end. It gives us all a visual and something to think about. This is really something... Thank you for sharing!

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
