Poetry

Smile, Girl

You ask me why don’t I smile?

A scowl is not necessary for a pretty girl

Smile in your presence

So you can enjoy my beauty

Learned at a young age that is my duty

***

I am for you

For all of you

But never for me

***

Stolen youth

Stolen innocence

Stolen past

Stolen Future

***

And yet I must bare a grin

Speak softly

and dress rightly for you

For all of you

***

you question my anger

Why do I get louder

 When I walk near you

***

I learned to shelter

Even from an elder

because “I belong to you”

***

So pardon my anger

My lack of banter

Because I refuse to belong to you

***

So I’ll shout a little louder

Even if you get madder

And make it a lot more harder

For me to belong to you
