Treasure Island

Kera Davis


Looking Within


There lies a girl
A girl who sees pain
A girl who feels pain
A girl who wishes for a change
A change for her
What causes her pain?
The pain of being alone
Afraid of being herself
Afraid of being someone
Too afraid if they’ll judge her
Judge her for being a little different
They call her names
But those names don’t hurt
So many has been said,
She just don’t feel the pain
For her outside is as tough as steel
But her inside as soft as a cloud
Wishing you could step in her shoes
Be her for a day
See the struggle she takes in
For all she lets you see
Is what may not be
But a happy girl on the outside
And a sad girl on the inside.
