A damsel in distress,
What a ridiculous phrase
As if I would need your saving, get your story straight.
I don't need a charming prince on his trusty steed.
Because I have got everything I need.
My legs have carried me through the harshest storms.
My voice is powerful enough to create a roar.
My mind is the only thing that was there for me when I was down, and when you let me be.
I was the one who healed myself through my darkest time. I patched up my own wounds and wiped off the grime.
So, don't try to sweep me off my feet. Because I will fight back.
I'm not a trophy to be won. I deserve to live my own life, but wait I'm not done.
I'm tired of being the flavor of the day and then tossed on the floor.
As if I was some dirty laundry and nothing much more.
All I ask is that you treat me with the same respect.
Because I am not a damsel in distress.
