Baby Girl | A Poem by Debra Sasak Ross

She walked the darkest, lonely streets at night
Because she couldn’t stand the pain;
The pain of her cheating husband
Who had impregnated another woman.

She waked the darkest, lonely streets at night
Looking for answers,
Answers she never found.
The only answers she found
Were people who worshiped
A glass pipe
And more men who cheated on their wives.
She lost her family.
She lost her life.
She lost herself.
