Princess, Saved

What is a princess?

What does she think of?

Does her mind race about the worlds beyond her, 

does she wonder what the world has in store for her outside of her comfort?

 

What is a princess?

Why won't anyone understand,

That if she wants to run, she can

If she can be free, why not let her be?

 

What is a princess?

And why does her father always decide

which wave to catch or when she can watch the tide?

 

What is a princess?

She is a strong woman

a woman with power

a woman who is fierce

a woman by her own respect

a woman.
