Black Girl Lost

The black girl arrives in the city with big dreams.
The streets are dark and deep.
Black girl has promises to keep.

She is naive and new
Black girl trusts the tall, dark man
Wearing the blue immaculate suit.

His name is LA Jack.
They leave in a silver Cadillac.                                                                                                    Good times are not coming back

The ruthless pimp wastes no time getting her.
His poison is killing her big dreams,
body, and rotting her soul.

The map of scars on her skinny body
Older than what she should be.
Fifty johns a week
Now, mentally she is weak.

Death is all the black girl wants.
What a cost
Another black girl lost.
