I used to be the little girl, 

Who threw herself in the deep end,

No inflatable arm bands,

No fear of the world around me.

For my father was there to catch me,

And I was so carefree.

 

Now I am a woman,

Who cannot walk around a pool,

For fear of falling in.

Who cannot walk in the dark,

For fear of stumbling.

Who’s petrified of stairs,

For fear of tumbling.

Who cannot face the world,

For fear of the whispers and the mumbling.

For there was a man,

Who left me crumbling.

 

And you see, I cannot face my father,

For fear of troubling him,

With the truth,

That this man left me malfunctioning.
