#120-Just A Girl

She's just a girl...

A girl who acts tough,

But let's people get a little too rough.

A girl who loves music,

Mostly just James Bay and Coldplay.

A girl who's good at talking shit,

But will cry if you're the one saying it.

A girl who loves her best friend,

But, too often, thinks about how it'll all end.

Not a lot of people know,

All the shit she's going through,

And, sadly, still only a few do.

She's a girl who doesn't believe the compliments she gets,

Because she thinks it's always based on bets.

She's a girl who has lost so much,

And she's scared to even be touched.

She's given up on covering her scars,

And her eyes no longer shine like stars.

The old her is buried deep inside her soul,

And she's just waiting for it all to unfold...

    But I Don't think the shine is all gone from the eyes.
    As long as you are looking forward, there is hope. It can't rain all the time.
