im just a girl.

im just a girl thats been caught up in some storms.

i use a smile as a umbrella cuz im just a girl 

i smile when you see me but when you turn i put my head down.

 im just a girl going threw alot,& getting threw alot,

 im just a girl.

thats what you see me as.

but in reality im everything above and even more.

im just a girl caught in this down pour

 a girl whos heart is sore.

but i finally found someone who makes life worth living for.

im a girl that was forced to grow up to fast.

a young girl who never had a childhood

i was born into a life with drugs, alcohol, and violence. 

im just a girl that was scared everyday growing up.

one that tryed staying awake trying to make sure mom was ok.

hoping it would all be done the next day,

when really i knew it would happen again the next day.

i used to scream and cry and kick and punch but it didnt help it just meant i earned that black leather belt.

i was ok with it as long as it protected mom for that second. 

thats why today im strong.

but the reason im strong is wrong.

it feels like ive been living this life for so long.

 im just a girl.

 a girl effected by my past.

i know why i am the way i am.....whats your reason?
