Do Not/Am Not

Hey Diddle Diddle
The Cat had a Fiddle
And The Cow Jumped over the mooooooooon……….
 
Fairy tales
nursery rhymes
all taught to little girls
little boys
as the epitome of life.
All girls are damsels.
All guys knights in shining armour
with a few villains thrown in
one must keep the story interesting.
I do not want fairy tales.
I do not want a knight in shining armour.
I do not want to be a princess.
Frail
weak
delicate little flower
taught men are superior.
An untruth made real
fed to feed the egos of sensitives
who need to feel powerful
at the expense of others.
This curse
uttered not with care
has become a reality
falling down through decades
trailing through the centuries
one we struggle to counteract to this day.
I am not a Princess Fair.
I am a Dragon Warrior.
I will burn you with my fire.
I will taste your tears.
I will no longer bow.
Rise up
stand tall
for together we can do so much more.
