What's the Use?

Can you see it?

The hatred, the abuse?

She doesn’t show it

But what’s the use?

People will say it’s for “attention”

Throw her against the wall

Threaten her to mention

Because they fear to fall

It’s a food chain

You’re not at the top

The daily pain

Shows no sign to stop

Taking her life hasn’t crossed her mind

She loves too much

Her family is why

She refuses to give up

The whispers choke her

She drowns in the rumors

She can hear the laughter

It begins to grow like a tumor

Do others see it?

This hatred and abuse?

If they do, they don’t show it.

Because what’s the use?
