Black Child Lost

Beautiful black girl, you are its true
That man don’t love you
Look up at the sky, I’m sure God loves you
If he loved you he wouldn’t disrespect you and lower your self esteem
This is the same man who deprived you of dreams
Got you pregnant at sixteen
They say love is blind - black child what is on your mind
His abusive words hurt as you listen and believe
I know u want to get up, but your weakness and fear won’t allow u 2 leave
All u want is your hell 2 come to an end
No friends, you grew apart they’re all gone
And this is why your heart sings such a sad song
Black Child you’re a young rose who longs 2b a blooming flower
Pick up a book black sista
B’cause knowledge is power.
