from death to destiny

from red to black
a simple change in lipstick can set the whole mood
and one goes from being a blazed moment at a rowdy party
to being the shadow that haunts people walking home at night

from crop tops to camisoles
and maybe some leggings to go along with it
for while stretchy dresses certainly get the attention of those about to be manipulated
it certainly doesn’t lend itself well to moving quick against the captors

from urban dweller to suburban nightmare
the pain of being ostracized more than was expected
for everybody says that they would have handled it differently
but everybody lies about how they feel inside

from death to destiny
a handover as easy as a swing
with twice the distance and none of the skinned knees
or cracked ribs from landing too hard
