I know what lurks beneath
The rippling muscles and silky hair,
I know what’s underneath
The sultry eyes and the way they stare.
He said I was too sweet,
Too trusting and too prim,
But at least I have a heart that beats
And I can’t say that for him.

Having a heart is a strength, not a weakness. Don’t let this world tell you differently.
