They Tell Me

They tell me that I'm beautiful How much they love me They tell me I am special They tell me what they think I want to hear But they don't ask me How I feel Nor find out who I am They only want the body Not the mind Or the soul And when I say no Some just leave Some make promises They don't intend to keep Some take what they want Whether you want them to or not This has been my lot In life til now The men who have touched my body Have not truly know Who I am They have not truly touched me They have abused my body And wounded my spirit But have not destroyed My heart and soul.
