She is a Woman, Not an Option
She may come in the form of a sister, a mother, a cousin, and even a friend.
She is a woman, she is appealing, inspiring and strong.
So before you take up her energy and time, figure out what your true intentions are.
Get to know her mind, learn her heart, and try not to handle it in the same way the man did who made her fall apart.
She's been through this dance before, and where others have tried and given way, she's grown courageous enough to let you in, and bare every inch of insecurities that hold beneath her skin.
And no matter how strong she's grown, or how far she has gone on her own, she still has a heart of gold, a heart that loves hard and deep, and when its taken for granted, has the ability to break down at the seams.
