The daughter of Drupada

The daughter of Drupada

Where are the tears Draupadi?
Why the silence Draupadi?
Oh daughter of Drupada
Do you still call yourself a princess?

You look beaten down Draupadi
You look broken Draupadi
What’s that in your eyes?
Defeat, resignation…fear?

Why didn’t anyone stand up Draupadi?
Where were your lovers Draupadi?
Oh wife of the pandavas
Tell me what’s on your mind

“Oh Arjuna”, you cried
“Oh Arjuna”, you sighed
He did not lift a finger
He did not raise his bow

Where will you go now Draupadi?
What will you do now Draupadi?
They have taken all away
They have taken all away

Then she spoke oh then she spoke
The chill in her voice like a thousand thorns

“There will be blood”, she said
“I’ll have my vengeance”, she said
All is not lost
And all shall be won
