A Damsel in Distress Named Danielle By Jasen Sousa

A Damsel in Distress Named Danielle

Danielle’s summer
was hot as hell,
had a summer reading list,
but she wasn’t too concerned
about trying to read and trying to spell.
Only 15, but had seen
that wearing tight tops
attracted the most handsome looking
sexy, spectacular, sculpted jocks.
Her sultry style got her a date
with the schools biggest stud,
he arrived at her parent’s house looking spiffy,
he brought flowers and even
greeted her mom with a hug.
Sometimes the sweetest looking face
covers up a soul that is bitter,
pulled into an empty parking lot,
didn’t waste any time trying to flirt,
he just lifted up her skirt and did her.

At school her story
was being discussed by groups of girls near lockers,
everyone was shocked Danielle
and this model of a looking man hooked up,
it was one of the semesters biggest shockers.
The gorgeous guy walked down the hallway confidently
with an extra small tight white T-shirt
and a pair of Dockers.
Overnight, Danielle went from a nobody
to becoming a goddess at her school,
no one wanted to take her to a dance

or give her a glance, nothing but a feminine fool.
Now, she makes penis’ pulsate inside of boys pants,
they stare and drool.
Danielle’s confidence grew
and there was not a thing anyone could do,
she started sleeping around
and became the high school whore,
her dreams were coming true…
Always in detention,
a great way to get a boy’s attention,
she was the girl everyone knew.

Danielle was a good student, but once she
started stripping and skipping, down dropped
her draws and her grades.
Started coming to class thinking she was a star,
rocking beautiful braids and dark shades
and every speckle of glitter on her body
stood for all the people who she laid.
On the outside Danielle couldn’t be more happy,
on the inside, she couldn’t be more afraid.
Went to the clinic and got tested for AIDS,
tested positive,
astonished and amazed.
Contracted HIV and
Danielle isn’t sure if she will make it to age 23,
everything she wanted ruined her
and now Danielle dreams
of everything she used to be.

It wasn’t too long ago,
Danielle was a good girl,
now she carries around her filth
and everywhere she goes

she carries her guilt.
Every skimpy outfit
she threw out and said, “Good riddance!”
She cries when she sees the same boys and knows
they will only touch her
if they are wearing mittens.
Danielle is just one of many girls
who tries to be with the in-crowd,
all those girls who walk in Danielle’s high heel shoes,
just be real, I hope you are hearing
Danielle’s story clearly and loud.
If Danielle’s life could help change another
she would be proud.

Danielle is a damsel in distress,
I don’t have to ramble any longer,
you know Danielle’s life is a mess.
She awaits her sentence of death
and leaves her house everyday
wearing a long black dress.
