Am sorry am not sorry

I'm sorry it's my body and my boundaries
Am sorry I respect myself
Am sorry am preserving myself
Am sorry I take my time
Am sorry i don't want to be rushed
Because I know I'll be crushed
Am sorry you're out of my league
Am sorry am choosy and I want the best for me
Am sorry am not the crazy dirty girl of this age
Am sorry I can't be like those sluts you watch on t.v
Am sorry I seem so slow
Because guess what I can't stoop that low
Am sorry I don't fit in
Because am not of this place
Am of a higher ground
Am sorry I'm a child of a king
And I have to carry myself like a princess
Am sorry my body is priceless
Am sorry I deserve much more and you're less
But you know what?
Am not sorry for all that
You've got to deal with it
Because I have a greater relationship to protect
Because I'm betrothed
To a sweet man that wrote me a love letter using his own blood!
How priceless!
So don't expect me to choose you over him
Because you can never reach his standard
So deal with it!
Am NOT sorry!
