    As she wonders what she is to do next
    She realizes how low she has stooped to get her needs met

    She looks into the mirror and sees an image that is unrecognizable to herself
    She thinks there is more to her than her current reality

    Compromise has overtaken her ability to think the way she used to
    After all it has been one fool after the next and all they have ever wanted was sex

    Each fool worse than the one before with no promises ever kept
    No commitments made she lives her life in utter shame

    She sits and waits for her prince to come
    Hoping she will find someone who wants her someday
    Not realizing she needs to be focused on the person she is today

    Sharing her bed and opening up her legs have led her to a life of sheer hell
    Nothing is her own anymore, not even a thought in her very own head

    What she has once held sacred and dear has been given away at her need to please
    Because everyone has had a piece

    The natural beauty she once possessed cannot be seen
    For distortion in her face is all she can see

    If only she knew how special she was
    If only she her self worth

    She wouldn’t settle for less than what God has ordained to get her needs met
    Maybe then she can look into the mirror and see the image of a woman a value
    For she is not the woman mama and daddy raised
    She would like for them to be pleased and in doing so she herself may be appeased
