They said it in whispers

I was good for nothing

Nobody would ever want me

Certainly nobody would fall in love

I was cursed

By a woman that wouldn’t even take me home

At the time of my birth.

They told me to never speak to anyone

Because everyone would know it was my fault

That I had asked for it

So it was best to keep my little mouth shut.

They told me I was alone

Would always be

Alone

Because ‘girls like you’

Don’t deserve to be loved.

They told me I was filthy

A bastard

Unwanted

Unclean

Unworthy.

 

Cries were heard in the skies at night

Wishing one day this pain would stop.

Hurting more than just my regret

To frightened to tell the cop.

 

For years I screamed for someone to die

Any one of those stupid assholes.

Those screams went unheard, of course

Until Hades took their souls.

 

Vices, I had many

Nobody approved of them.

Wind dances past an angry heart

And this lady is a gem.

 

They told me I was alone

Which made me cry every night.

Then I met some ladies with the same struggles

And we’ve promised to put up a fight.
