Her flawless, pretty face is/ a mask for inner hatred/ she wanders lost and aimless/ cursed, ashamed, and often vacant/ never looked into her infant’s eyes
and saw her own reflection/ instead she saw her absent father
and features of her rapist/ never opened up to tell her mother
she was once molested/ out of fear that she would blame her for the countless indiscretions/ never felt such waves of anger as she closed our conversation/ and described her mother’s husband
reaching in her daughter’s playpen/ and I knew then what it meant to be her/ why she cocked that loaded pistol/ why she aimed and pulled the trigger/ why she teared up as she whispered this #metoo #hiphop #rapmusic #storytelling #buffalo #kentucky #prettygirls #takingbacktomorrow
