I Tell You This

​I do not hold onto my anger
  Or disappointments
And that affects my poetry
 
Housing projects
Bullies
Single mom
Welfare
Brother's hand me downs
 
Abuses by boys not sure yet
How to treat a woman
  Or girl
With breasts already bigger than
                                    their experiences
Dreaming of breasts as comfort
Grabbing them for confirmation
 
Child for a husband
Who hit with words
Withheld emotion
  And conversation
  And the will to provide
Sex as a privilege
Not desire
  But punishment
