Sabrina, Why’d You Stay?
’cause being alone with someone is better than being alone by myself,
and after my father left us, my mother chose drugs; I Was By Myself,
and when my mother’s boyfriend raped me, she blamed me, I WAS BY MYSELF.
He Was There! He loved me when I HAD NO ONE ELSE: I love MY MAN.
Why I Stayed? You wouldn’t understand!”
