So I kept myself
For ‘the one’ I was told was out there somewhere waiting for me
I kept myself because I was told that it was right
I kept myself for all this and more
‘The one’ found me pure, clean and well kept,

I was his jewel
He tainted me but that was okay
Because only he had that right
Only he touched my body
Only he caressed my face
I gave my whole being to him
But little did I realise that I shared him
I gave him 100% of myself, he only gave me 50%,

His other half belonged to another
We were both women but the difference between her and I
Was that I kept myself and she didn’t
I’ve left him, but I’ll never forget him
Every day when I drink those ARVs I just see his face

‘The one’ found me, and many others…
