The lyrics narrate a journey from silence and passivity ("I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath") to speaking out and asserting oneself ("I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire"). This transformation is presented as a reclaiming of personal strength and a refusal to be a victim or to be silenced by others.
The chorus, with its repeated affirmations ("You're gonna hear me roar"), serves as a powerful declaration of independence and self-empowerment. It's about not only finding one's voice but also being unafraid to let that voice be heard.
For my Sister...
