    Look At Her
    By Monad.poetress


    Look at her nice clothes and her blond hair
    That girl just doesn't seem to care
    She struts down the street with her designer gear
    Like she just won Ms. Ghetto Fabulous of the Year
    All she ever does is smile and flirt with guys
    But who would think that at night she cries
    Cause she's out on these streets not just for fun
    When it comes to role models she really has none
    She's smiling so bright just to hold the tears back
    She seems so on point and nothing she seems to lack
    Except a hot meal and a stable home
    See she's only 16 but she's out on her own
    Her mother didn't want kids suddenly one day
    So she turned her back on them and threw them away
    So now all her kids depend on Ms. Blond for all that they need
    And when they go to sleep she fires up the weed
    Her mind is so foggy
    With no where to turn
    So she just watches the blunt as the ashes burn
    Look at her today she has changed her hair to red
    Looking at her though you wouldn't know her soul is dead
    All that you see is her fancy clothes that cost
    Never would you know that she's a black girl lost

    reply to Monad Poetess

    Blond black monthly bleeder blanketed in nice cloths
    Educated and edified by educators from shows;
    Shows shallow, shows shady, life shows shrouded
    And stained with sin, sin sick sheep with brains clouded;
    Un-fit sleeping sheep not to be eatten and taken within!



    Great poem from a poetic and polished poetess

    Shes put her mind to sleep so she can do what she feels she needs to do. You have a way of capturing a feeling, dear poet, keep flowing.
