    There you are, standing there, on some dimly-lit bar
    in a shiny g-string with tassles on your nipples
    making simulated love to a shiny, metal pole
    shakin' your butt in some foreigners face
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're only twelve years old, just a baby

    Your face made up like a porcelain, china doll
    gaudy, pretty, over-exagerated, making you look older
    some overweight guy in a crumpled business suit
    throwing money at your feet as you dance
    You're a lady off the night, but not a lady
    You're livin' in a world so dark and shady

    Sold to a whorehouse for a handful of money
    to be used as a sex slave/plaything
    until their lewd obscenities roll together like a horror film
    that will only end when you are no longer young or beautiful
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're existing, holding on, just barely

    How much money do they put in your little hands
    for a blow job, or for a golden shower
    or for him to have free reign over your body
    while living out some sick, long-held fantasy
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're dealing with the devil almost daily

    You snort cocaine to help you through your days
    which are a journey of abnormality and unreality
    in a world where depraved men continually lust after
    the honey-golden skin of your pre-pubescent body
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're a player in the game of inhumanity

    Already you are most likely a walking death sentence
    an uninviting host to a hoard of deadly diseases
    which will only hasten your enforced self-destruction
    ironic, because you battle daily for survival
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're destined to be, another forgotten fatality

    In the midst of this nightmarish hell called life
    I wonder, little doll, do you yearn for freedom
    knowing that you will never attain it/taste it
    never experience childhood, forever being a woman-child
    You're a lady of the night, but not a lady
    You're only twelve years old, just a baby

    Kitana ... you speak to this so eloquently, so lovingly, so kind
    if there is a lady ... a 12 year old baby ... listening

    she's crying now ... wondering where this peace was
    so very long ago ... when she was still 11

    :heart:

    thank you so much for your words..did you look into my heart and find them, because they are exactly what I think every time I write a piece like this...why wasn't someone there last year, last month, last week, just a minute ago, to stop it and take the baby in their arms and heal the hurt...and let them be, just a baby...
