Taboo

There’s not much to say

And what is said is censored

And then you’re shook

Literally appalled

Baffled

If only someone would’ve warned you

Counseled you

You wouldn’t be a statistic

You wouldn’t be one in seven teens

You wouldn’t be living a life in fear

And regret

No longer can you lay in bed

Lay down with a lover

All because it was taboo

There’s not much to say

And what is said is censored

No one ever told you to use

Protection

And now you’re shook

Literally appalled

Baffled

And in nine months your HIV positive baby

Will feel the same

All could’ve been avoided if someone

Warned you

Counseled you
