Chiquitita I am sorry
That you are blue and black
That he’s taught you that all you have worth
Is your body
And that you think that you are dumb.
Chiquitita it’s alright to cry
But why do you keep believing his lies?
He’s made a spider web of deceptions
And you are his prey this time.
He gets angry at you
Tells you that you are a good for nothing
That this is for your own good
Y lo se my chiquitita,
I know that you think he’s telling the truth.
Well he’s a smooth liar,
Charming as can be,
You thought he was your sweet prince
But what came out were injuries,
Your wings have been broken
There’s no escaping
At least that’s what you think,
But listen chiquitita
You can follow me tonight
And we can leave before dawn.
He won’t change,
And your skin will turn from white
And finally just a river of red
When he’s done with you.
You know I’ll always be the shoulder you can cry on,
Oh don’t deny the things he does
Eso es lo que el es
Thinking that man have to be tough
And beat up the one they care for.
That’s just not it,
Sure he was probably taught that by his father
Boys don’t cry,
Instead they are tough,
They are the providers
And show no emotions.
Sure that might be what he learned
But there’s no helping him,
But you there is helping,
Just let go of him.
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I am sure you wonder
Why he’s beating you.
That smooth criminal
With eyes perfectly guarded
If I could save a soul tonight
Then you will be the one.
Chiquitita listen to me,
El siempre sera haci,
Just pack your bags
And let’s be gone…
It might be too late next time.
Mi querida chiquitita,
Remember when I told you to run
And you didn’t listen?
Cuando te dije
Time after time
But all you kept saying was “He’ll change, he loves me, El es el unico para mi”
Now where are we?
In this black world
Where tears mix
Where it’s too late
And all I can see is the stupid scars,
He abuses you,
And you ignore me
You keep making excuses for him
And where did it get us?
You in a basket,
People that care about you suffering,
All because it was too late to stop it.
Now you are gone,
I am alone,
Everyone keeps asking me stupid questions
And look at me like I am suppose to know
But I am so tired
And all I want to do is…scream,
Tu memoria sique aqui
Your ghost follows me
Making me wonder why…
Porque no te pude sarbar,
Why I couldn’t save you.
This poem was made a while back when I was doing a Talent show in the boarding school I was spending the summer at. I am sorry it’s so long but I do hope you enjoy and I was able to use my native tongue which is Spanish.Abuse is never right whether mentally, Physically or verbally, women should not hit men and men should never hit women either, if this is happening to you, Speak out, it does get better.
Y lo se-And I know
Un machista, Eso es lo que el es- A masochist, That is what he is
Pero tu-But you
El siempre sera haci-He will always be like that
Mi querida chiquitita-My dear little girl
Cuando te dije-When I told you
El es el unico para mi-He is the only one for me
Tu memoria sique aqui-Your memory is still here
Porque no te pude sarbar-Why I couldn’t save you
