Just a Girl

I’m rather plain,

not smart but not dumb just not a talented girl.

But I used to think

I might have one or two things to offer the world.

I didn’t intend

to let you have so much power over me.

Somehow though,

you slipped into my thoughts rather boldly.

Now I can’t help

but question everything I say and all I do.

I no longer know

what I believe in, what I stand for, or what is true.

We will part now

and if lucky go our separate ways.

Your negative voice

is going to linger in my mind for days.

Shake it off

is so much easier said than done.

Let it go

before I become undone.

I don’t think

there is really a right or wrong.

It takes all

I have to just carry on.

Tucked inside

my bruised heart I carry the blame.

My greatest fear

is that I will not ever be the same.

I used to think

I was a simple girl

who had a thing

or two to offer this world.

  1. You offer this world far more than you know or realize. The greatest in this world are the ones who give the most positively and receive the greatest and unfair criticisms. You are in great company and those who go about bruising hearts are also is extended company. I prefer to be on the side that you are!!

  2. Thank you for this. I wrote this back in October in the heat of the moment. I felt nervous to publish it since it is so raw but decided to go ahead with it.
