I am a damsel and I don't need saving.

I am a damsel of my own who doesn't need a white horse with a perfectly straight silver hair. I won't be fooled by your beautiful facade.

I am a damsel, contented with my own set of spears and solitude it brings me. I got a better set of sword to fight for my own.

I am a damsel who doesn't need anyone to sweep me off my feet and carry me away from my own home. I don't need an empty castle to wallow my time away.

I am a damsel who doesn't need a prince to become a princess--I am already the queen of my own life.  

I am damsel who doesn't need a hero to take her on adventures: I've got my own map for the expedition I planned on my own. I won't be taken into barren lands, I'll explore the depth of the oceans and wildness of the land.

I am a damsel who's in a tower, without a ladder. I don't need your ropes to help me down. Only to find out, it'd be the same rope that you'll tie around my body. No, I'll break every brick and torn the tower apart to grab my freedom. I won't be freed just to be caged again.

I am a damsel
And I can handle my distress.
