Eighteen at age now
Walking around with a six year old child and a smile
People look and judge
And say she must
Be a hoe, a slut,
Easy to get in bed,
Or even easier to get some head from.
But people don’t know
The story behind her.
You see, she was six
When it all started,
The same age as her daughter now,
But don’t you fear
Because she will never let that happen to her
Daughter, the child of incest,
Of lust, of pain, of anger and tears.
You see she was emancipated at sixteen
To make a better life for her daughter
And her, Dropped out of school
To become a Nanny, but don’t let this fret
She went back and got her degree right away.
But she had to get away from
Her mom and the memories of the MAN,
Her biological, but the other word
We will never call him
It’s too absurd.
He took innocence of a child
He doesn’t deserve that word
Raping her almost every day for eight years
Not caring that he had a kid with his own kid.
And her mom, she knew
But didn’t turn him in because
That was “her man”
Didn’t leave him because he paid the bills
She was a crack feen and
Needed him for her next fix.
Oh Poor baby, who had a baby
But because of this child she is always able to smile
The life she holds she knows she will not let her down
She will give her daughter everything she did not have,
Love, support, family, care,
She doesn’t regret her daughter’s birth
Nothing can equal to the precious child’s worth.
She will not go through the same pain!
Because you see, the raping stopped
after only eight years because
At fourteen, she got fed up
And one night, when he came
To take her innocence again,
She pulled a beretta from
Under her Mickey Mouse pillow
And put four bullets in his skull
Then cried and rejoiced
“He’s dead, He’s dead
My dad, my dad
He’s DEAD, He’s DEAD
THANK GOD, THANK GOD”
Eighteen at age now
And all you see is her with
Her six year old child and a smile.
