I'm Sorry I’m Sorry No truly I am I’m sorry for so many things, to so many people, through so many times But most of all, I’m just sorry I believed all the lies I mean I guess it should come as no surprise that the right to my body is nothing more than a social disguise based on the notion that a man has a right to anything in his eyes From my thighs to my hair And no not my dreads but the ones “down there” as long as my skirt was short enough to “invite” him to stare So I’m Sorry I apologize for this disguise that I wear or put on but I’m so glad you knew it was meant to turn you on because the clothes that I wear have no significance to me as a human being Rather they’re meant for you to define me by what you’re seeing Believing that my hemline determines my inner being, I invite you to look down upon me while I suffocate beneath this glass ceiling So Forgive me Forgive me please for not getting the memo That if I drink a little bit too much I go from being a woman to a hoe For forgetting that if I sip drinks than liquor shouldn’t be the only thing that I expect down my throat because If I’m not really asking for it then … he really won’t Now I’m not sure if my apology is coming off entirely too sincerely So let me take a minute to break it down for y’all just a little bit 88
