a girl 13

13 and she breaking down
13 and she just cant get a break
thirteen and 'bout to catch a case
amazed at this hell hole she living in
displeasing and tart to to the taste
13 and all alone
she thirteen and crying
crying cuz daddy done left home
or crying cuz mama scared
crying we hurting
aching cuz she thirtheen
how can she live at the age of 13
lurking around every corner
a disaster awaits
breaking down every day
she needs something, someone
she's saying
'help Me..save ME..take ME away
i dont wanna be thirteen
her life lived so far has been miserable
any day, any time, always
a male walks around cuz he think he got a 13 year old with benefits
yea maybe she got a cute shape
or maybe she got rocking curves
but just maybe that beautiful girl is 13
13 and miserable,13 and hurting,
13 and gotta play mother
cuz mama out destroying her soul
but only doing it to save her daughters soul
allowing her daughter to live
she knows how mama's feeling
knows that mama doing the best she can
but now this thirteen year old girl
laying on her face crying out to God
screaming, 'WHY LORD, WHY ME'
she's thirteen
