I'm The Girl

I'm the girl that keeps a smile on her face,
Even when things are a mess and her faith falls out of place,
I'm the girl who believes in taking chances for what she wants,
Instead of pretending to be happy as someone she's not.

I'm the girl who's not afraid to let her emotions show,
And learns to go on as her feelings start to grow,
I'm the girl who would never give up on the love of her life,
Because there are two paths and she can take the wrong or the right,
I'm the girl who would walk a million miles away,
Just to find the love that she's been waiting for everyday.

I'm the girl who dosen't care about what other people think of her style,
The one that savors every moment even if its only for a little while,
I'm the girl who wishes but dosen't believe,
Because she's sad if she lets go and then her love would leave.

I'm that girl that people call weird, random, and dramatic,
But there's more to me if you'll listen behind all the noise and static,
I'm that girl that can cry and laugh at the same time,
The one who's innocent-looking but can commit a heartbreaking crime,
I'm the girl that tries so hard to push herself through,
The one that doesn't care if she'll ever fit in group cool.

I'm the girl you can call unperfect,
My hair's always in a mess,
I'm under a lot of pressure and some stress,
I'm really not so diffrent from the rest,
If it were up to me I'd say I come in second best.

I'm that girl who loves to laugh,
The one that can joke around while her world is falling with a great big crash,
The one who envies those blond girls and they're perfect lives,
Meanwhile I'm stuck on this wild ride.

I'm the girl that loves to dream,
But this reality is not what it seems,
A fairytale ending waiting to come true,
Another risk worth taking, what does she have to lose?

I'm the girl who can never prove what she can really do,
Because she gives up to easily but no one really knew,
Instead she's judged by others that are strangers to her eyes,
Bottled up with silent cries and too many old goodbyes,
But no one's there so she has to rely on herself...

I'm that girl,
And this is my world...

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
