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!
So don't expect me to choose you over him
Because you can never reach his standard
So deal with it!
Am NOT sorry!
