Don't tell me Eve didn't know what she was doing
When she decided she was worth more than a garden helper.
Don't tell me Helen didn't go willingly
When she found a prince who knew how to love her.
Don't tell me these women of old
They were powerful
They knew what they wanted.
Don't tell me Isolde was in the wrong
When she was given away as a prize.
Don't tell me Susan became shallow
When only she grew up as she should've.
Don't tell me these women of stories
Were out of line,
They were strong
They took what they deserved.
Don't tell me Alice simply got lost
When she found a world to believe in.
Don't tell me Ursula was the villain
When she was cast out and survived.
Don't tell me these women of fairy-tales
They were tenacious
They survived and thrived
Don't tell me I'm not a woman
When I say I want more than just kids.
Don't tell me I don't understand
When I say I will be more than the ring on my finger.
Don't tell me I
I am built of iron
I am created to destroy
And I will rise from your ashes.
