Look - Poem by Shaneka Taylor

Look this way and that way and you will see
What life has to hold and the truth about me
My life is a wreck
My dad hasn't sent my mom a child support check
I have been here and there
With only a few people who really cared
I've been mollested and abused
Cussed out and misused
I've been to and fro
Because I have no place to go
My life is a road that never ends
Its so beat up no one knows where it begins
The pain I feel and the tears I cry
Only lead me to the question...why?
Why it had to be me
Was it really meant to be
So now you see what life has to hold
And the thruht about me.
