She inhales the savage cigarette smoke,
*cough, cough* she sadly can not 
cope — 
viciously drinking cheap alcohol until she chokes,
a life filled with no hope,
eventually wraps her neck with a suicidal rope —
towards her death, she ruthlessly chokes.
her family still cries every night,
facing the demonic tragedies of this ghetto life.
her mother grabs the knife;
as she asks what's the price of a Black Women's life?
she injects a knife inside her oxygen pipes –
SHE IS DEAD!!
reuniting with her suicidal daughter in hell,
fell in love with the devil —
but she couldn't kiss & tell.
Tales of the Ghetto.
