    She’s gotta handle him
    Or someone else will
    She should left him that first time
    Shoulda got on the pill

    Now shes still crying
    Still complaining to her friends
    They’ve been tight forever
    But their predicting her end

    Whined about how she couldn’t get pregnant
    Even though she was only 17
    You would have thought she has some goals
    Maybe even some dreams

    No one wants to see her die
    But yet she won’t listen
    She arrives with bruises and black eyes
    And pain in her eyes that glisten

    Yet 5 months later
    There’s sumthing on the news
    Her n66a got hisself killed
    Trying to have something to prove

    When she found out
    She said she couldn’t live any longer
    He killed her self esteem
    Her friends tried to make it stronger

    So on the day they buried him
    She shot herself dead with a gun
    And everyone was shocked….
    To find she was pregnant with a son
