L.I.F.E

By BriAnna Reshae

 

L.I.F.E

Why did you have to choose me?

I had so many things that I wanted to be

 

God I’m tired of crying

I know you tired of me whining

I just don’t want my baby to end up dying

 

I don’t like it here

I always feel him near

Why do I always wake up filled with so much fear?

 

You were supposed to protect me and care

But you rather drag me by my hair

This situation you forced us in just isn’t fair

 

It’s our relationship that she trusted

I prayed and hoped you would get busted

Instead of loving me, you looked at my body and lusted

 

You started off touching my thigh

Then I begin to cry

I tried telling her but all you want to do is deny

 

My pregnant belly holds what’s true

The life in me is innocent and new

My baby’s grandpa and father sadly had to be you

 

I know my baby will ask someday

And what am I supposed to say?

Because there is nothing about this situation that is okay

 

L.I.F.E

Why did you have to choose me?

I had so many things that I wanted to be
