Coincidence brought me to you with good intentions,
Hoping to change my attitude towards love.
After so many of the same mistakes, I should have known.
No person could resist being trapped by the allure that
Concealed your true motives. It was painful learning
Each drop of innocence lost can never be reclaimed.
Over and over again, I criticized myself
Reliving the pain of being used.
I felt the weight of guilt cutting off air when
Some innate voice whispered,
It does not define who you are.
The decision is yours.
Fortunately, I could hear that voice-but many don't.
Advocate for the love and appreciation
That every girl deserves- for
Everything she is, was, and will be.
