Several Different Names but a B#tch Ain't One!
Several Different Names but a B*tch Ain’t One
by Brittany Carson
In today’s society it should be a crime
how women of all ages have been objectified
What’s even sadder is the fact that some women answer to the names
that people have given to us like it’s a twisted little game
They call us tricks and b*tches and prance us around in thongs
Rappers disrespect and degrade us in most of their songs
And yet many grown women will still sing right along
And the majority of our young girls don’t even realize what’s wrong
with this picture that society has been painting about us for years
Just the thought of the oblivion almost brings me to tears
Young girls and all my ladies don’t you understand your worth?
You are full of purpose and potential! That’s why you were put here on this Earth
You are a classy lady who deserves to be treated with respect
Not an “around the way girl” who’s just looking to collect
You could never be a “dime” because you are worth more than gold
And you’re not a “gold digger” but it’s ok to dig goals
“THOTs”? Are they serious? We are certainly not hoes!
We’re not dogs, cows, chicken heads, pigeons, or crows
We are daughters of the Most High King so we are royalty
Don’t allow Chris Brown’s lyrics to describe you as he questions loyalty
While I’m on this subject I might as well say
Inner beauty trumps outer beauty on any given day
A woman can offer the world much more than her curves
So don’t focus so much on appearance but on speaking kind words
I’m just spitting you ladies some knowledge and now I am done
Just know you may have several different names but a b*tch ain’t one!
