a female protagonist

January 9, 2010
As I seek to find a sword
I just don’t think of a likely storm
I know the good guys have it real bad
theres always a challenge for the young lad
I found a part of me in a rose
I took it back to see how it grows
it didn’t get enough water, didn’t get enough sunlight
like me when I was fighting evil in broad daylight
this seems like a story in an action-packed book
but truly ive been stolen by a cold-hearted crook
hands tied together above my head
"You'll never get out" someone had said
the walls were painted as black coffee
I swore someone yelled my name out from the lobby
oh
did I mention, that i'm working for men
oh
I must have rested my eyes again

Woah. This is good! I love the underlying meaning of the strength required  to be a woman in a male dominated world.
