For years she would cry
Over something that day
But she'd never tell.
She'd forgotten her voice
Se was the quiet girl
The one who never got in trouble
Did what she was told to do
Never said no.
She'd be there for everyone else,
But never herself
She'd forgotten her voice.
Torn up deep inside
She felt she had no other choice
Looking in the mirror at some stranger
Disappointed at what she saw
She broke her reflection
Glass shattered, her hand bleeding
Picking up a sharp piece
Slowly putting it to her wrist
Pressing down ever so slightly...
She threw it down
She went to school that day 
And never came back home
She finally remembered her voice.
