I Am A Queen

I am a queen.

I’m brave sometimes,

I’m scared sometimes.

Sometimes I’m brave even when I’m scared.

I believe in loyalty and trust,

I think standing up for myself is important,

I think standing up for others is more important,

But standing with others is most important.

I believe caring makes me strong,

Kindness is power,

And family is the tightest bond of all.

(This was made in response to Lucasfilm’s International Day of the Girl video to promote the women of Star Wars, which previously excluded Padme, but, thanks to fan demand, now includes Padme. So, in the spirit of irony, I lifted the words from Disney’s “I Am a Princess” video, to celebrate the unsung queens of Star Wars, because not enough little girls go through a queen phase.

And seriously, there needs to be a “Disney Queen” collection!)

  1. I think they previously excluded Padme to suck up to the Red Letter Media crowd, but when the real fans torched them for it, they were forced to include her……..
    LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!
