Have you ever met the handsome man?
He shows up when I feel really down
Beckoning me to take his hand
He promises there will be no more pain with him
No more sadness
No more hurt.
Those promises are sometimes tempting
But I refuse no matter how hard he tries.
The world may often be cruel
But there are moments where that little bit of beauty shines through
Making every bit of cruelty worth it
Besides, I still have so much to do.
He sometimes tries to dance with me.
Sometimes I accept the dance, but never let him take me away
I always pull away from his embrace
For there is so much left for m
So if you ever meet the Handsome Man
Refuse his hand
Simply because you are worth so much more than that.
