I asked for a neat and orderly man;
You just gave me an untidy one who scatters where I gather.
Yes my daughter, that’s why you grew up amidst five male siblings;
I’ve been grooming you for this very thing.
I asked for a slim girl with no spot on the skin;
You just gave me a fat and spotted leopard.
Ooh, indeed my little boy;
Why do you think I gave you all that money?
Spend some on her and you’ll get your desired result.
My blessing may come in a package you do not desire
But always remember, beneath lies your desire.
A gentleman so fair and fun
Asked me out for a date and more
Just the kind of man I’ve longed for
Praying and hoping and wishing he came.
But then I began to think and consider
What will he say about this scar?
What about the bruises I still carry?
I look really awful and out of shape.
I searched around for some to help
Shopped and hoped he liked my look
I made-up, I cut down and wore some masked too
I entered his presence thinking ‘I did my best.’
My Lover looked at me in the face
Not with admiration but full compassion
Then He shed a tear that took me aback
He saw my confusion and then spoke out.
“My sweet, sweet little girl,
I know just what you’ve been up against
You need not hide the scars or bruises
They cannot destroy that beauty I put in you
I love you just as you are.
Never try to earn my love another day
I love you, I love you, I love you
My sweet, sweet little girl.
