I almost gave it all away
Almost had a man walk all over me,
Like some disgusting bubble-gum under his heel
I almost let him get away with me

Run away with what is mine
I almost gave my all
To a worthless man,
One who did not deserve me

I carried out wifely duties
With no diamond on my finger
Washed, ironed, cleaned and cooked for him
While he sat back and watched

I’m glad I walked out of that non-rewarding relationship
With some dignity still intact
Because I sacrificed a lot in the name of love
To a loveless soul

I almost… but I didn’t let him
