Babygirl, run

by Yakari Gabriel   Apr 15, 2016

Babygirl run, when his words
start reeking of misogyny
when he starts coming up with
excuses why sleaziness is
allowed for him and not you

babygirl, run
When he starts to point out your flaws,
telling you what not to wear
starts coming home too late,
too often, disregards you,
berates you.

babygirl, run.
you are absolute magic
and if he ever stops saying it

babygirl run,
run far
run fast

    This is so powerful. I feel you have been hurt far to often. Felt this 'sleaziness' enough and enough is enough.
    You are magic and so is this.
