Look at me and what do you see
maybe a pretty face, maybe some skin and bones
but there’s not a threat in me,
keep them away, stop throwing stones.
I mean you no harm,
nor have I ever meant it to anyone
I have no harmful atom in me
what do you see?
I’m curious, I really am, can I know
what wisdom have you decided to bestow
to make me a threat, you think I can be a fighter
right now, my thoughts couldn’t be lighter.
I always went where the wind blew
I was always the obedient one
I don’t know if things can change, who knew
I could start being harmful, at least in my mind.
