Was and Now..

looking forward

Who am I?


The girl everyone seems to hate


The girl who hates to be late


because she hates the stares that everyone gives her when she walks in the room.


Who am I?


The confused girl


The lonely girl


because every guy she meets is so interested in the beginning


But decides to leave in the end


Who am I?


The girl who everyone thinks will succeed


But is overwhelmed with the responsibility of not doing her best while everyone is looking.


The girl who smiles and beams with sunshine on the outside


But screams help me within her heart

Who am I?

The girl who still runs back to the men who hurt her most

The girl who looks at herself in the mirror and still doesn’t understand why she doesn’t choose herself  first

Who am I?

The girl who thinks she’s so far behind in life

So she can’t remain hype about the good moves she’s making

But..

That’s Who I was…

Who am I now…

Strong minded..

Because the man who she once loved told her otherwise.

Wise…

Because she took every mistake and turned it into a lesson

Happy..

Because even though she cares about others happiness.. She just started to put hers first

Motivated…

Because she won’t let herself become depressed by what others have done to hurt her..

One step ahead..

Because she won’t let the dangers around her knock her back to the place she once was

Understanding…

Because she has felt the pain.. heard the hate…and wiped the tears in her eyes

Beautiful..

From the inside out.. and no one can tell her different..
