Nobody knows my real name
‘Angel’ is what I go by
I’m freezing cold
I don’t have money
Just the clothes on my back
I am a walking wardrobe
I am lonely
I smell like crap
I am starving hungry
I can’t find any shelter
My clothes are drenched
I look like
A drowned rat
Violence
Upon ‘women’
Is classed normal
Around here
I wonder
If I will survive
Another day?
Only,
To wake up
And
Do this
All over, again!
Protect me tonight
As I lay my head to rest
“I love you, dear God”
“Goodnight”
