    at a point in time
    one must return to self

    learn to respect
    oneself rather than
    place her man upon a shelf
    this heart is sacred territory
    to search and find a hidden
    treasure u must first
    get to know me don't ever
    control me

    allow me to run free
    live happily as a bee
    prancing flower to flower
    in search of a honey tree
    instead to find a home
    a place nice and warm
    cozy up on a shelf
    with each and every passing
    moment

    returning to one self
