BASTARD (from The Man I Wanted to See)

BASTARD

(from The Man I Wanted to See)

 

...telling me that

I’m a bastard becuz

my mama and my daddy wasn’t married but

she can’t see

nor could he

that You created that rule

in the name of

Jesus

…pretend to be what you might. I don’t pretend…

and I don’t trust you,

just like

you don’t trust me and

that feels so ugly.

At the sight of me you

zip up your purse

lock your doors

hide your keys.

I don’t want your things.

I just want you to

respect me and

to please

refrain

from calling me

anything and everything

outside of

my

NAME.
