Because like everything else in this patriarchal world, our fairytales need a major overhall too
If fairytales are real then she is the kind of princess no prince or king could ever handle
She was not made for parties but battlefields and saddles
When you tell her about all the things she cannot be,
She reminds you that she is both war and woman and says, “you cannot stop me.”
She needs no prince or knight to fight her fight
for her strength alone can tame the dragon’s might
Born to lead armies and conquer worlds,
To bring forth tempests and hale gales
Unto those who tempt her wrath
She cannot be tamed and her fire defies all waters.
Born to savor the victory of war and might,
She is the kind of princess future bedtimes stories will talk about at night.
