9-15-11 ... Lipstick"-If you were to ask me why? All you would hear are excuses."The female stared into the mirror, applying the lipstick of a whore,to fit with her slutty makeup and skimpy clothing."-You're too pretty for this, baby."The words so many had said rang through her mind."-c'mon, get out of this Hell. Why do you do this to yourself?"She tightly placed the cap back on the tube of lipstick.She spoke allowed to herself, in a loud, angry tone."I do this to put my baby through school, to put myself through school.I do this to make a better life for us. You wouldn't understand!"Then simply tossing the lipstick to the side,on the floor it lay, most likely to never be seen again.Then speaking softly, as she walked out to her workplace."If you ask me why, all you'll hear are excuses."
