pLeDgE oF a StOrYtElLeR

 
I would tell stories, I am a storyteller
I would create, procreate and reproduce
I am a woman, and I spawn more than what
Your naked eyes could witness, through
A whole lifetime of yours; do not try
To gash open my womb to see where I hide,
Where I hide those golden offspring of mine
You’ll never find them: you’re not quite an artist
You’re the magician whose tricks are too old
To recreate illusions that froze me with awe
Only I would tell stories, I am a storyteller
You can’t rush through the beginning
You won’t find your perfect ending
Suffocated by your own interpretation of events,
My stories have my word, my way, my law!
