I Cry For The Girl

Updated: Jun 25

I cry for the girl

I cry for her

My heart bleeds for her

I feel for her





I cry for the girl I once was

So unsatiated for love, she accepted being used


I cry for the girl I once was

So starved for acceptance, she accepted lies


I cry for the girl I once was

So suffocated for care, she accepted despair


I cry for the girl I once was

So athirst for validation, she accepted toleration


I cry for the girl I once was

So eager to please, she accepted abuse


I cry for the girl I once was

So famished for company, she accepted the enemy


I cry for the girl I once was

So ravenous for authenticity, she accepted mediocrity


I cry for the girl I once was

So hungry for nurture, she accepted spoils


I cry for the girl I once was

So void of family, she accepted trickery


I cry for the girl I once was

So empty of community, she accepted slavery


I cry for the girl

I cry for her

My heart bleeds for her

I feel for her

The girl who settles

Because she's never been taught better

The girl who is too strong

Because she's only known bad weather

The girl who is broken

Because so was her mother (father)

I cry for the girl

Who cries for her mama (papa)
