• Once a friend told me that I was a natural beauty
    with a heart as pure as gold.
    I had told them I disagree,
    for I am far too old.
    I've seen too many things in my time,
    I've cheated many people and games,
    and when I leave this godforsaken life
    I'll still turn out the same.
    My friend turned to look at me with a catty grin.
    "And yet you still disagree?
    You have the sense to admit your faults,
    and that's all that matters to me."
