Protect Me As I Sleep

Nobody Knows my real name ‘Angel’ Is what I go by I am freezing cold I don’t have money Just, the clothes on my back I am a walking wardrobe I am lonely I smell like crap I am starving hungry I can’t find any shelter My clothes are drenched I look like a drowned rat! Violence Upon women Is classed normal Around here! I wonder... If I will survive Another day? Only To wake up And Do this All over, again! “Protect me tonight As,I lay my head to rest” “I love you, dear God” “Goodnight”
