All i need is loyalty

to my true self, the real me.

The faith and pride

cannot hide

the love i have left

to give, inside.

For one who someday

will see,

What I can dream

and waht I can be.

How great life is

when you find

The truth in yourself,

Your peace of mind.

There is only one way

I know how

And that's to go all out

There's no stopping me now.

I've planted the stakes

into this lot

Nowhere left to go

but to the top.

With you or alone

I'm fine on my own,

I'm gonna make it this time

I'll have what's mine.

No holding me down

In my new gown

of glory and gems

Because I don't need him.

I don't need them.

"In my new gown of glory and gems" was the best line... the rest felt tinted... if that's what you are than you don't feel the urge to say it... self absorbed is not only considering yourself, it's 'being all that you can be' and rest in peace my homies, peace of mind so i'd hate to think that i'd boast about myself, it's a facade to get over on yourself

Literature Fairy, as always thank you for the comment, glad you keep reading. Shaisty-Chase-Tea, i appreciate the critique although im slightly lost in your comment. thank you though. This piece was just a get it out and put it on paper. Not much else to it, not all my heart and soul put into it like most of my stuff. Just enough to get my point across if you know what i mean. but i appreciate your comment and your reading. thank you

Yes, let us not forget the point:

which way will this fine lady point?

She clearly needs some loyalty

to be the one she wants to be.

Black Widow, Wonder Woman, Rogue,

and She Hulk hardly are in vogue,

and loyalty gets pretty thin

when you're the only one that's in.

What would she do if someone came

who saw that she were not the same?

How might it ruffle ruthlessness

to feel the truth in love's caress?

We chase our dreams, and they chase us,

while life waits patiently for us.
