Little Girl

Little girl walking down the street
pretty-eyed, brown, and extremely sweet
Walking to her crazy home
Why was the little girl walking alone?
Behind her, she hears a car coming
The little girl never thought to start running
The car starts going faster and faster
She didn’t see this as a disaster
She didn’t expect this was the end
Pulling up next to her was her brother’s friend
He said, “Hey little one, you need a ride?”
Don’t be afraid just get inside
She said, “it’s okay, I’m almost there.”
Inside she was becoming scared
He stopped the car and hopped out
Very angry he begins to shout
“Why don’t you just get in the car?
You said yourself it isn’t far”
Little girl small and scared
Started to run as her mind dared
Before she knew she blacked out
Her mind still conscious, trying to shout
She’s lying bleeding on the ground
Afraid to move and make a sound
Next day she’s in the hospital bed
The doctor told her mama she isn’t dead
After those days when she needed help
She learned it’s best to help herself
Little girl not bitter but sweet
Turned out to have been raped and beaten
