14. Innocence Lost

Back when I was 5

Injustice

The bully stealing my animal crackers

Then pulling my pig-tails

The teacher

Just looking on

After all

"Boys will be boys"

When that same boy gives me a black eye

Boys will still just be boys 

I suppose that's when I realized 

No one would really be there for me

 

Now that I'm 13

Injustice

The popular girls

Call me fat

A popular boys asks me out

I finally think things are getting better

He dumps me later 

Says it was just a bet

No one would truly like someone so fat

 

Laughing behind my back

 

Now that I'm 20

Injustice

The fraternity

Getting away

With the rape of my best friend

Injustice

My best friend killed herself

Four months later

 

 

Now that I'm 30

Injustice

A boy tried to sexually assault my daughter

The school doesn't care

Injustice

My daughter was wearing proactive clothes

I won't apologize for my daughter

With her collar-bones that are so attractive

That a boy needed to touch her boobs

While telling her

Everything that he wants to do

With her body

 

Now that I'm 40

My son is in high school

He's gay

I don't care

Injustice

Other people care

Injustice

In the locker room

They spill his blood on the floor

Injustice

Make him straight

By raping him

In the locker room
