My name is Michelle Contreras,
I always hated that name,
My name is Michelle,
She thought of Denise,
But I kicked when she said it,
My mom named me Michelle last minute.
The doctors expected the day I was born.
They predicted and so she believed them.
I came out crying; a brat from that day.
Fight my way to be who I am.
My name is Michelle Contreras.
Nobody suspected the brood.
Contreras means contrary,
The end of name means jackass.
One girl said I am a cunt, rear, and ass.
That is how we lived back then.
My moods swung like swords,
"That is who like God" I laughed.
Who made me hate myself I wondered,
Like Alice in a glass.
When were you born?
I was born on February 1st.
In the winter of Chicago,
When all hell burst.
