She walks confidently down the street,
To any passerby,
She appears an average happy person,
just like you or me.
But inside lives a little girl
scared, lonely, and confused.
Pretending that she has her life in control
but in reality,
she doesn't know what to do.
She thinks of her mother
angry,mean, and bitter.
She thinks of all the hateful words and actions,
that hurt her,one way or another.
She remembers her father
who was never really there
and never loved her enough
to ever really care.
She recalls with shame
all the men she put in his place,
and the mistaken love they showed her
by slapping her in the face.
Her heart aches with misery
as she remembered the baby
that died in her stomach,
and the little girl
she doesn't know how she will raise,
for she has only love to give her,
not wealth or money.
She thinks with disappointment on her future
because now her dreams will not be fulfilled.
She can no longer be a model,actress, or singer.
She wonders constantly
what happiness means,
but she figures she has her whole to find out-
for this lost little girl is only fourteen.
