It is just a poem about a girl who is looking to take on the world but soon finds that it will not be so kind to her.

As a young girl I had big dreams for my future. 
But as I grew up my dreams changed into nightmares.
My body began changing and everyone began to notice.
I heard lots of empty promises and broken lies.
No one wanted to love me like I wanted to be loved. 
They used me and threw me away like dirt.
Scarring my body and taking a piece of me 
As they did.
How was I supposed to know?
Was I the one to blame?
I wanted a better life than what I had, 
But as I kept getting older the worse it got for me.
No one really wanted me. 
I was an outcast.
I was jaded and broken.
My beauty began to falter and the light
Slowly began to leave my eyes.
Taking what was left of me as he took what 
He thought he deserved.
How can one be so cruel?
My dreams for the future became dust.
And soon the wind would carry them away.
Shattering my false security and leaving me exposed.
