Childhood Memories

 
Itís so funny, itís so funny, I am laughing so hard
I cant stop, if I did, I would fall to my knees crying

I remember it like yesterday, walking down the steps I just got done cleaning my aunts house

She looked at me, my aunt said so casually, in front of all the guest sitting there watching

Lori you stinkÖI was frozen, I was 11
I didn't know what she meant, I asked her what do you mean?

She said you stink, didn't your mom teach you anything?

When you start growing up, you need to wear deodorant

I did not know what that was, I asked her what is that? she took me back upstairs, with everyone watching and laughing

She showed me a little plastic bottle, with a round ball on it, and she said you wear it under your arms, so you don't stink like you do now

I ran, I ran so fast home, I laughed so hard, I laughed and laughed, I got into the bath and cried

I stole from stores, for years all the things a woman needs; after I turned 14 I forged my identity

My first job at 14 was at a gas station, sold so much alcohol to all the drunks and people of legal drinking age

I always worked 2 jobs and never let myself get dirty or stink

I taught my brothers, and now you would never smell anything but the best on there skin

We may be poor but we do not wear cheap perfume

I raised my children, at the age of school to always smell good

If by some odd chance, you may seem them dirty from working

You can bet a million on it, they smell like a million

Back to me, my skin is always smooth, no hair on my body

My skin is always oiled, I smell like rose or coconut or passion flower or whatever might smell good to me for the day, and I douche with honey

I can honestly say now, my aunt sits in stink, with her crippled body in pain, mutated by arthritis and her teeth decayed she is 54 years old

I think about how she marked me, and hurt me that way

I think about all my relatives that laughed at me, sitting in adult diapers because they never learned to do Kegals and tighten their pussies
