If I Were Still Single

If I were still single
I will see love and life from a different angle,
knowing that what makes a wise woman
is beyond trying to please every man.
I will not look out for comfort and cool cash
from men who will dump me like trash.

If I were still single,
I will not put my mind on how to mingle,
knowing that single-hood is not a status,
but a season to be faithful and focus...
I will not flush the street with skimpy skirts,
only to be a cheap prey to some freaky flirts.

If I were still single,
I will never let my heart niggle,
knowing that I am not meant to be a liability;
looking for love will not be my priority,
I will metamorphose into an assorted asset,
to be found by man who needs more than a pet.

If I were still single,
I will read the tales of love-triangle.
Knowing that love is beyond deep feelings;
even sadists and rapist have...deep feelings.
I won't open my legs to some random guy
who only want to feast on my fruits and fly...

If I were still single,
I will let manners and modesty be my jingle,
knowing that make-ups can turn to fake-ups,
my man won't see a stranger... when he wakes up.
I will not look for a man with mansions,
but a man who has mission and clear visions.

If I were still single
I will look before I leap,
and not sell my self cheap,
my body is my business
my private platter is priceless.
if you can't wait, you are not strong enough,
I am a treasure so tender and tough,
I will crave a love-life that will last long...
I will wait for a man steadfast and strong.
