They Make It Try To Sound Southern

But it ain’t. More than just southern people will say “ain’t”, and I hope you know it.
Slap a slow accent on a thing and we can all call it bad. But the reality is that it ain’t. I ain’t southern and neither are the sons’s’a’bitches that saw it right to fuck me in the ass as a kid.
I spend my time trying to find the people who were terrified by what I went through. I spend my time trying to stifle screams so my kids don’t know what PTSD means. And one day I’ll be cool enough to tie it all into a neat movie that will make you cry. And then you’ll try to pretend the movie wasn’t real.
But know this now. All sorts of shitfucks say ain’t. It ain’t southern, and from the moment I heard it I hated it. It ain’t a word, and it ain’t just southern. It is real, and Ain’t is where I come from.
