she was a girl who forced
her smiles
her dreams
her appearance
her soul
she was a girl lost
too scared to ask a stranger for help
too proud to admit she had gotten it all wrong
too ashamed to reveal how she had been coping
she was a girl who had enough of not feeling enough
she was a girl
who finally learned
that being herself
was the key
to being free
