    Conceived by 2.
    Birthed by 1.
    Nurtured by none.
    Hunger is her companion.
    There 2 tuck her in bed at night
    & wake her in the a.m.
    Rarely does she attend school, cuz she can't cope
    with the mayhem caused by the teasing cuz her clothes are
    old & 2 small.
    So the streets are her classes & her instructors
    are boosters & hustlers.
    She's an honor roll student with straight A's in gaming.
    Her eyes are accustomed 2 scanning stores,
    searching 4 anything worth taking.

    Swift with her hands & quick on her feet.
    Learned at an innocent age that if she didn't steal, she didn't eat.
    She was nearing 13 & lookin' forward 2 jumpin' on the track,
    Cuz she was told by one of her favorite teachers that she
    could make more money workin' on her back.
    Her young mind was influenced by watching
    those cats in the big hats drivin' cadillacs with their fingers full of rings.
    Impressed by the dangers that they bring by just being in the vicinity.
    And the seeming divinity of those who possessed the streets holy trinity
    of money, power, & respect.

    Young in the mind, but matured in the frame...
    So she uses her physique 2 get men 2 pay 4 a moment
    of time between her legs.
    At 16, she builds egos, livin' a life that's illegal.
    But she's slick cuz she learned from people who were
    instinctively deceitful.
    She's a freak show all on her own,
    Singin' in monotone microphones,
    Actin' & soundin' like she's grown
    Makin' old men jones 4 the activities she's shown them.
    She controls them, but doesn't know it yet,
    Cuz she's still wet behind the ears even though
    she's been entertaining 4 3 years.

    Believes tears is a sign of weakness
    So she keeps her peepers leakless,
    A life of no love has destroyed the sweetness
    as everyday the bitterness increases.
    Cuz demons in the guise of friends
    embraced her & taught her the wiles of sin.
    Her smile could win the heart of any man
    if she was only taught 2 be a lady.
    But she uses it 2 gain riches...
    Removes britches with the swiftness of a seasoned pro.
    But she's only 16 years old....
    16...
    And a ho.

    Exposed 2 a life that most see only in shows
    Cuz her moms was addicted 2 anything alcoholic...
    Especially if it came with a d!ck.
    Bein' that she was a woman child, she possessed neither
    so moms wasn't interested.
    She gave her a place 2 stay & that was as far as it went.
    Very little food in the kitchen cuz whenever moms had money
    she spent it on herself 2 catch a mate 4 the night.
    More concerned with her sexlife than her child's life...
    She let the stars write her story & the streets illustrate it.
    She didn't attempt 2 hide the fact that the older her daughter got,
    the more she was hated.

    She degraded her in front of male company
    And reacted angrily 2 her cries & pleas.
    Her daughter knows the feel of her hits
    more than the touch of her kiss.
    Now, she's seperated from both parents,
    & both are equally not missed...
    But they are.

    If both parents were present & involved,
    would her life have a valuable price instead of an expensive cost?
    If she felt the love of either parent,
    would she still be that little blak girl lost?
