Just a story

The cold of the winter bites 
As she hurried walk home
The bus was late tonight
She don’t like to be out alone

She got out her keys
Lock the door behind her
Sits with a hot cup of tea
And covers on the sofa

Same time across the city
Another girl wasn't lucky as her
She works the night shift
But her life will change forever

On the subway platform
She was pulled by two men
Who had their way with her?
And left her never to be mend

She was found by a passer by
She awake in the hospital
And was question by police
But she never remember it all

She couldn't go back to work
She was never the same after
She decides leaves the city 
And go live with her mother

One morning she got so sick
When she smells deodorant
So she went to doctor
Turns out she was pregnant

She sits in MacDonald s
Thinking over a cup of coffee
Didn't I had normal life
Why this did happens to me

What is she going to do now?
She’s pregnant for rapist
Her mother was supportive
Saying you will get through this

She spoke to the local priest
Who said this is an innocent life
She always wishes to be pregnant
When she is some one wife

She decided to have an abortion
And was opening the clinic door
She ran into an old school friend
Hasn’t seen for ten years or more

He ask her out to lunch
And started talking of day gone by
She told him about her situations
And he hugs her when she cries

He told of his crush for her
And it has never gone away
Ask her to marry him
And he become a father that day

They both stand clap proudly
As they watch him graduate
Then all went out to Manhattan
And had dinner to celebrate
