I used to be a different girl

I used to be someone who had peace within

Then I became a teenager

I became the girl I used to hate

The one who would cry over a boy I knew I could never have

I became the girl that was no different from anyone else

The one who cared about how flat her stomach was

Then one day it hit me

One day I realized

That I had the power to change myself

That day I saw that popularity doesn’t matter

How attractive you are doesn't matter

What really matters is whether you’re happy,

Whether you’re truly happy

Even now, I still make mistakes

I’m human

Just like everyone else

The only difference is

This time – I’m aware

Aware of how the world can corrupt and change

Aware of how I don’t have to let it happen to me

Now, as I reach the end of my teenage years

I think I’ve finally discovered the key

To finding inner peace again
