I've gotten better.

Better at hiding the pain.

Better at hiding the scars.

Better at saying "I'm ok".

Nobody thinks twice.

Nobody wonders about the girl,

that sits with her friends.

They see someone who laughs,

not someone who cries.

Someone who helps the abused,

not someone who abuses.

But now that you're gone,

she doesn't want to hide.

She wants to cry,

and not be thought of as weak.

She wants to abuse,

and not be though of as crazy.

She wants to say " I'm NOT ok"

and have somebody listen instead of judge.

All this girl wants,

is to be herself,

in one messed up world.
