This girl is strong,
She’s foolhardy, almost never wrong.
You either like her or you don’t,
This girl, so powerful,
You sometimes wonder what went wrong.
This girl, she’s funny
And sweet and kind
And pleasant all around.
This girl, she makes everyone smile,
But something’s lacking in her own.
This girl, she’s independent.
Pretends she’s fine as day,
Helps everyone as she laughs and plays.
She is focused,
Stands up for what she believes in,
Makes everyone cower.
This girl, she’s unbelievable.
But this girl, she has a flaw.
This girl loves,
Sometimes too much,
Most times even more.
This girl, she hurts for others,
When no one else hurts for her.
She feels too much of everything,
While everyone else feels almost none.
And because she’s so independent
And powerful and strong,
This girl, she carries
All her burdens on her own.
But everyone needs some
Support along the way,
And this girl,
She’s no exception
To being human.
This girl, she starts to find it
Hard to smile and laugh
And make everything seem okay.
The burdens are getting too heavy
And she’s gotten too weak to fake
-So they drag her down.
Yet no one notices
-or maybe they just watch
In a most silent pity-.
This girl, she’s losing her shine
And suddenly everyone seems to forget
That this girl was ever even bright.
This girl, she fades to black
Waiting for someone to see.
Crying in frustration,
She’s lost out in debris.
She’s holding onto her independence,
Weak and powerless as she may have gotten,
This girl clings on to the remnants of herself
But as she does she inadvertently tramples
On her last remaining chances to survive.
This girl once the fiercest flame,
Has now died out in utter shame.
And this girl she now sees,
More than anyone,
What a terrible place
This world could be.
