Currency

Broken promises and empty words are not the currency of my heart.
I spent a lifetime waiting and anticipating for love to be an example to me, but it never came.
Leaving fear and mistrust in its place,
So, I only accept actions and intentions,
I will not be short changed.
Being present and showing me I matter to you,
I won’t be chasing or begging for your attention,
Fully knowing and stepping into my worth,
I will remain kind, but I won’t be making currency exchanges,
My value is higher than you can afford
I will not be dealing out any discounts,
So if you want to be with me,
You have to come with the right currency,
