I cannot be pregnant.

I cannot be pregnant.

   I wanna spit in their faces, then I get afraid of what that could bring.
  I got a bowling ball in my stomach, I got a desert in my mouth.
  Figures that my courage would choose to sell out now.

Little Earthquakes

  Hey, but I don’t care ’cause sometimes,
  I said sometimes I hear my voice
  I hear my voice, I hear my voice, and it’s been here
  Silent all these years.
