This is not Pretty Woman.
There is no knight in shining armour
Coming to rescue you.
Just hands holding you down,
Bodies that buy you,
People that own you
But don’t see you.
When you were once
Somebody’s sister,
Somebody’s mother,
Somebody’s sweetheart.
But always you’ll be
Somebody’s daughter,
Somebody’s Child.
