We are used and abused but we keep holding on
Our bodies and souls are violated
But we continue to stay strong
The love we give is priceless
But we still are done wrong
A woman can only take so much for so long

Our names are cursed and bodies beaten
The children we bare
Are often products of irresponsible semen
The lips on are faces are smiling
When our insides are bleeding

So much for so long we continue to put up with
We are rewarded by being called names like
"Ho" and "Bitch"
Even though life crushes our hearts
We continue to live
Everything we do is either for our men or for our kids

One day we will rise above this world of men
The sun will shine on our lovely face again
Our battered souls will reach the gates of heaven
Only God will appreciate the like of WOMEN
