My Heroine Mulan
She enters the fray with the spirit soul of a determined dragon
Mysticism working in her favor, her ancestors to the ready
The Huns are fiercely diabolical; and wickedly mean.
Mulan does not hesitate to jump in, ready for any battle
She is ready to save China, without any need to save herself
Soldiers follow her, knowing she will sacrifice herself gladly.
Her bravery encourages them to follow wherever she leads
She is the heart of China, a woman with a mission.
A willing servant, who serves the Emperor, and her people.
The Huns have heard of her, and they think she will go easy.
Little do they know the heart of a tiger lives within her,
And she fights like a warrior bear; with the respect of her troops.
