that little girl in me
still cries out for help
that same girl that would care for others
but hurt herself
she never felt love
only pain and abuse
people who claimed they love her only wanted to
that poor little girl
with a smile and heart of gold
she reached out for love and warmth
but only felt the cold
time and time again
she constantly wondered
‘why me’
she would cut herself in anger
only wanting to be
she’s still misunderstood
cause know one really knows
whenever i look in the mirror
i cry because the
little girl in me
still shows
