Authenticity is my best friend,

Irony a brother.

Red lipstick and a gold watch 

To accessorize my black sheath.

I've no time for hypocrites

Or their sister, Gossip.

Honesty is my mantra,

My thick skin a shield and armor.

Who am I,

You question?

I'm a woman in this world

Given her heart to a Man of Light. 

Do you feel envious?

Go ahead, digress me.
