This Girl

This girl is very difficult to live with
It takes a strong person to understand her

She demands attention

She is hotheaded

She can be vicious with her words

This girl runs away from conflict

And creates it at the same time

She needs love yet she rejects it

It is difficult to understand 

Until you realize that I’m speaking 

About this girl in 40 years

Still suffering from the damage

Of being emotionally abused

This girl just wants to be nurtured 

To be cuddled and made to feel safe

This girl is in the healing process

This girl is ready to sing

She wants everyone to know how she feels

She wants her thoughts to be accepted

This girl is just a grown up child

This girl is my inner me
