I’m looking for my knight in Shining armor
A man of strength, a man of honor.
I’m going thru my list and description in my mind
A man to my liking, a man who is kind
Prayers up to bring this to fruition
Leaving it up to my ambition
To find the perfect soul mate
Bring him to life through fate
I’m not the perfect woman…
Hold up, hold up, … oh man!
Why she even got this list??
Who does she think she is?
A list of perfection when she is so imperfect?
Get yourself right before you get checked
It makes no sense
Sitting in suspense
Ain’t in the right mind
She don’t got the time
Creating an imaginary man and hold every one to those fake expectations
Sitting around wondering why she got so much frustration
She trying to get a dime piece when she ain’t got no peace let alone a dime
Still don’t know who she is inside
Those real parts she always trying to hide
Never found a break-through or self acceptance
Full of grief and repentance
Yet she’s trying to find the perfect man
He don’t exist nor does she
Haven’t found herself or her inner peace
You see people want all these things thinking it will make them feel better, but it’s more than just the feels
It’s become a trend setter.
Holding these men to some fake expectation
Growing weary in hope and losing your patience
When what you need is to work on yourself
Look within and grow some wealth
For your mind, spirituality and peace
Before you get caught up in between the sheets
Then You’ll start compromising
And you end up crying
Because inside you’re dying
Your entire life confining
What you are truly capable of
Relying on self without self love
So when you gonna throw that list away?
Before yourself you betray
Listen deep inside, it’s best to obey
What does your inner voice say?
Forget about the perfect man
Work on you and devise the perfect plan
The rest will come
Best be prepared so you don’t fall
Wake up, rise up, be the Queen you were called to be
Stop living lies and misery
Recognize your self worth
You are the salt of the earth
All of your sins have already been forgiven
So rise up and live the life you supposed to be livin’
