Age Group: Adult

I'm a stranger in a strange place, but I know my way around;
Though I am rarely lost now, I am hardly ever found.
This city is gray, the sky is bleak, and my head is full of fairy tales
With firebirds and Prince Charmings and villains who are doomed to fail.
Although the path is perilous, the hero must always win:
He slays the dragon, gets the girl, and his heart is free from sin.
One thing I never understood is why the girl needs to be saved.
Maybe the dragon is her best friend and the tower she herself made.
And what if maybe as the hero whisks her away,
She cries to the western winds, and she says:

"I'd rather be an Amazon, I'd rather run with wolves,
Braiding wildflowers into my hair and dancing beneath the moon.
I don't need a man who tells me to just accept my fate,
For I am my own hero, and I will not be tamed."

The nightfall comes so early up north this time of year,
That the heroes can start hunting right when the shadows appear.
"Little girl, " they like to say, and, "can I walk you home?"
"I'll be fine, " is my usual reply,
"and there's a reason, there’s a reason why I walk alone.

"I'd rather be an Amazon, I'd rather run with wolves,
Dancing naked in the forest and howling at the moon.
I'd rather bathe in mountain springs, I'd rather be forever free,
And if you want me tamed, don't bother wanting me."

This cat won't be declawed; this bird won't clip her wings.
If that prospect scares you, you can't be the man of my dreams.
An Alpha needs an Alpha, and I will accept nothing less.
Just don't expect me to ever be submissive.

For I'll always be an Amazon, I'll always run with wolves.
I'll braid wildflowers into my hair and dance beneath the moon.
When the weather's nice, I'll sleep outside, under the countless stars,
And though my lifestyle has its hazards, and I, my share of scars,
I'd rather be an Amazon and call on the Huntress' name,
Than ever let my soul be caged or let my heart be tamed.

If you think you can keep up with me,
And if I haven't yet scared you away,
Then I'm willing to let you try...
Maybe one day.
