you could toil through the taverns of a million women looking for the hidden treasures of me
you can trek a thousand miles
exploring valleys deep as Yosemite

you can spend a lifetime journeying through peaks & valleys
trying to find my same identity
but she won’t shine with the same intensity
because she & I were created differently

You see, you can’t compare stars to constellations βœ¨

you will lose yourself in excursions
going from one to the next person
trying to craft different versions
of someone who’ll never be me

then crawl into the caves of 10 million women and still not find the sweet nectar of my essence

Now you’ve set out on an impossible journey in search of what you once held… in the home of your heart
