Afraid


Broken is the girl reflected in the mirror looking back at me
Eyes guarded
Heart Tainted
Afraid of what could be
Wishing for what is wanted
This girl still stuck at sixteen instead of embracing twenty-one
Mind full of ideas but body afraid of action
Trying to break the ice only to make a scratch
This barrier is not able to be penetrated
This is unconditional hate
Having this hate for the little girl that wishes she had known
The little girl that is now grown
She can only laugh to hide the hurt
She can only smile so that no one will see her pain
Those that see through her façade never seem to question her pain
Either for the sake of not caring or the fear of knowing
