This is a relfection of some of my life, and where I am today.

There once was a little girl

Who wished she could change herself.

She wished that what happened to her

Would just go away and leave her alone,

Instead of coming back to her mind...

Over and over again.

She wished that she could see the good in herself

Just like those around her could.

The girl wanted to be loved by everyone around her,

So she acted like the ones

She wanted to get attention from.

She wanted to believe in God,

But where was He when she needed Him the most?

She wanted to be known

For who she was and what she was good at

Instead of what she wore and her looks.

She really wanted to know who she was.

Though she knew there was a God

And that He loved her very much,

She didn't always feel that love.

A few years later,

She is over the pain of what had happened

And is starting to know who she is.

She is someone who:

Loves meeting new people

And who also always sings.

She knows that people love her

No matter what she wears or does.

She has more confidence in herself

And she starts to join things

That she would not normally have before...

Such as the worship team at her church

And the choir as well.

She now also believes that

She is beautiful, but it shy about it.

She finallly is starting to

Figure out who she is.

Do you want to know something special?

That little girl is me.
