They Say


They say you're a pretty girl
But that look makes the boys go crazy
They say you're old enough to dress yourself
But that skirt says you want much more
They say you're innocent
But that dress tells another story
They say he is a good boy
But your provocative outfit provoked him
They say he is in control
But cannot control himself
They say you're safe
But your scars tell another story
They say to trust administration
But you're still coughing up water
Water from the last time they let you drown
They say to move on and live
But you are fighting to survive, not living at all
They say they know best
You know they are naive
You wish you still were
