He destroyed your confidence, girl,
He’s the cause of your pain, girl
You got to be stronger than that, girl

    Strong and justifiably angry poem. I like the passion and indignation. Repetition of the word 'girl' is a staccato, natural echo throughout - and it reinforces the innocence of the victim. I like the powerful, simple, straightforward words and phrases (He drew your blood, girl) . Great ending line.

    Keep up the internal fire - passion makes the best poetry, and you have it. (Report) Reply
