She runs from pain like she hides from the truth.
Honesty, integrity; things that aren't her roots.
She dreams of wings and flying away
Hopes that somehow there will be a better day.
She prays for peace as she fights,
Waiting for her miracle and a shining Knight.
She cries inside as she silently screams-
Oh why couldn't things be as they seemed? !
She bleeds in secret and hopes in spirit
Wishing for the end so she doesn't have to bear it.
Blue eyes hiding tears,
Green eyes living fears,
Brown eyes dreaming of a better place,
Hazel eyes gazing out into space.
The mirror doesn't tell her what she wants to hear.
The music isn't showing her a way out of here.
Those boys can't hurt her as she hurts herself.
Those girls stopped taunting in fear of their health.
Her ideas can't be broken
Her thoughts rarely spoken.
She has her eyes...
They're always lost in the sky.
She's battered and bruised inside and out,
What she wouldn't give to be able to shout.
She doesn't know who she is or what she wants
Only that in her nightmares her past does haunt.
She can't disappear or lie anymore
Hell, she's long forgotten what she was fighting for.
