Red Tears

  1. 1. Red Tears
  2. 2. Looking in the mirror, At my brightly painted face.
  3. 3. I know its just a job, To pay rent for this old place.
  4. 4. I'm preparing myself for, Another night of work.
  5. 5. Walking down the stroll, To be picked up by some jerk.
  6. 6. I don't know who I am now, Inside I'm so ashamed.
  7. 7. Why do I sell my body, Do I think its just a game?
  8. 8. I wanted to be a model, But life is so unfair,
  9. 9. Here I am a prostitute, with my wavy bleach blond hair.
  10. 10. The guys smile and whistle at me, But don't hear a sound.
  11. 11. My heart beats on ear drums, And I fall to the ground.
  12. 12. I beg the God I once knew, To wipe away my tears.
  13. 13. I only want a better life, I'm sick of living in this fear.
  14. 14. As I feel a gentle touch, On my shaking arm.
  15. 15. I look up though my tears, eyes reflecting my alarm.
  16. 16. There stands a stranger, With worry in his eyes.
  17. 17. Dressed in a handsome suit, He inquires why I cry?
  18. 18. I tell him is my bad night, And stand up to walk away.
  19. 19. But he hands me a paper, "I heard you sincerely pray"
  20. 20. And as I unfold the letter, A signed blank check falls out.
  21. 21. Use this to change you life, You can write any amount.
  22. 22. I turn to thank the stranger, Joy written on my face.
  23. 23. The stranger was gone, The bearer of grace.
