There once was a girl who thought that she was damaged.
The girl with thoughts of death and pain, that girl was me.
The girl that cared what people thought of her as she walked in a skirt to school, that was me.
The girl that tried to kill herself because she couldn't tolerate the rumors, that was me.
The girl that cried every night before going to bed, listening to the yelling and things being thrown across the room, that was me.
The girl that gave up easily and didn't care about anything anymore, that was me.
The girl that didn't believe in second chances after she saw everything fail, that girl was me.
But TODAY I am...
I am the girl that started believing in God, not in men.
I am the girl that never gives up and walks around with confidence.
I am the girl that feels loved and cared for.
I am the girl that is now fearless and no longer fearful.
I am the girl that started following her dreams.
I am the girl that is strong because I know my weakness.
