I am not the dirt on the ground to be stepped on, disrespected,
Unnoticed, not admired.
Sprayed off of a car with a hose.
I am a rose.
I am not the old doll stuck on the shelf
Only taken down when you are bored and want to play.
Casting me aside while you think it's laughable.
I am valuable.
I am not the secret to be taken to your grave.
Going out of your way for people not to know about.
Ashamed for the world to see.
I am the gallery.
I am not the mediocre being you try to paint me out to be.
Pretending you're not impressed by my accolades.
Can't be happy for me cause your failures were tragic.
I am magic.
I am no longer your woman
Used, abused, taken for granted.
Living in your Hell.
I am an angel.
