    He pulled up in a flip/flop painted Expedition let down the window slowly and called your name.
    Lil' miss grown only 14 years old didn't notice the game.
    Asked you your age"17"you replied
    That was a bold face lie
    Examined your premature face,big hips and slim waist
    Licked his lips like papa before grace.
    Tried to act big and tough like you knew ya stuff
    Then wanted to run and hide when he got rough
    "If you loved me.....you'd do this for me"
    Gave in and layed down your tender body.
    STOP!
    Rewind the tape and go back to that day.
    What did you say?
    Now you have memory loss?
    Remember you said nobody could take your soul for any cost?
    Then why are you stuck with this lame who shot cocaine in your vein?
    Left you to sleep in cardboard boxes sulking in the rain?
    A baby brought into the picture body full of crack
    Do you know how to get that back?
    Started ya life off bad
    Got you selling drugs in sacks.
    Locked you up in his world made you feel like his only girl.
    Eve wasn't lying when she said,"Love is blind"
    Cuz it sure as hell took over your mind
    Face wrinkled flabby and old
    Like rotten meat not Aluminum foiled.
    PAUSE!
    All this happend why?
    Because you told a lie
    Got into something before your time
    Didn't give yourself time to grow
    A life with a husband,healthy children,descent job,and a picket fence......you'll never know.

    You have talent beyond your years, this was so on point. Some young girls just don't realize that you have the rest of your life to be grown, appreciate your youth, it's gone before you know it.
