Don’t be foolish, Sweetie.

Society will tell you
who you should be.
Hollywood says sex appeal
is more valuable
than your own soul.

You can show off your body,
but be a lady when you do.
You’ll be judged
regardless of what you do.

If people are intolerant of your worst,
they are undeserving of your best.

Friends who stay are true.
Sisters will always stay.
Lovers are heartbreakers,

And don’t be unhappy
with someone—
you’re better off alone.
