I have done it before

I won't do it again

I know what I want

and I know that I can

I might leave to be someone

For somebody else

But if you don't know who’s real

Watch yourself


I am a lady


A good two shoes

So Refined

But I am a firebrand

Watch for my spark

If you give me a dance

I’ll shine in the dark


I am a dancer

A poet

A daughter

A friend

I’m a writer

I create worlds without ends

I am human

I have many flaws

I bend and break

and tell lies to avoid laws


A lady knows her limits

But I don’t know mine

Perhaps I never will

Give me time
