Not Your Burden

She is surviving
You must not carry her burden
You must not carry her pain
You are not your mother's pain
She is not your burden
Someone must break the cycle of chains
Generations of abuse
Enduring his verbal slashes
At your pelvis
And you wonder why you are like the way
You are is a mixture of everyone else's burdens
Young girl
Be free
Someone must break the cycle
You must begin to love yourself more than other
She should too
Survival is contingent on our ability to care for ourselves
Young girl , take care of yourself
Because no one else will
And while they may be caught in the cycle
Generations of abuse
Enduring the slap across your behind
6 years old
Married with children
Perverted without conscience
It is not your burden
Young girl
