I don’t know what
life has bee like for you, though –
I DO NOT KNOW WHERE EWE GO
I don’t know the hand on YOUR THROAT
THAT MADE YOU GHOST
I JUST KNOW THE HAND ON MINE
I remember that blackness, man
I was OUT OF TIME.
But DO NOT ASK ME
what I was wearing
or did I cry?
Or was I crying?
or was it scary?
IN A TONE THAT SUGGESTS
I’M JUST GETTING WHAT I GET.
I was wearing SWEATPANTS
and a TANK TOP
THAT DOES NOT MAKE IT MY FAULT.
Do NOT ASK ME WHAT I WAS DRINKING OR THINKING OR WHY OUT LATE?
like that makes any difference
RAPE IS RAPE.
Could have been ANYTHING
could have been NOTHING
TRUTH IS A MAN WAS OUT HUNTING
AND HE HUNTED
He was from Mexico MAN
RAPE IS AN ACT OF WAR AND NOW I’M
He was CATH- OL -LIC
like a lil bitch HE TOOK WHAT WASN’T GIVEN
do I FORGIVE HIM?
What I DON’T FORGIVE ARE EWE
WHO turn your heads and say TO ME WHAT DID YOU DO?
TO WHO? WHAT DID I DO TO WHO?
I TALKED WITH HIM
ASKED HIM OF HIS CULTURE AND RELIGION.
THIS WORLD IS RUDE.
I WASN’T EXPECTING HIM TO PULL HIS DICK OUT
HE CAME AT ME SO FAST
HE SAID HE WAS SORRY SO
PAST IS PAST
BUT FUCK YOU FUCK FUCK FUCK YOU NO
THAT IS NOT OK
AND THIS WORLD IS SCARIER THAN I’VE EVER SEEN IT YO.
YOU CAN’T BREAK THIS SPIRIT DUDE
IT WAS ALREADY DEAD.
I DON’T CARE WHAT IMAGES YOU THINK YOU HAVE IN YOUR HEAD.
I KNOW WHAT I HAVE SEEN AND I KNOW WHAT I HAVE DONE AND WHAT I HAVE SAID AND I STAND BEFORE GOD.
I DO NOT BELONG HERE IN THIS SOCIETY
YOU SAY IT’S OK ‘TO EACH THEIR OWN”
BUT THE MINUTE I NEED EWE TO MEAN IT
EWE ARE GONE.
AND I’M ALL ALONE
BUT FOR JESUS IN MY HEART WHERE
I AM HOME.
