From the way you look at me,
the way you care for me,
and the way you give to me,
It’s obvious you think I’m an easy prey,
and the perfect person
you can use to pass time.
You can have your way or abandon me
but it won’t change a thing about me
because I know my worth.
I am mighty, elegant, and powerful
and would remain same
when you’re long gone.
