Their words had pierced her
Like a bullet
She always felt so down
She always felt
She couldn’t do it
She ignored them
She sat in silence
But deep inside
She hid her cries
She began to fall so fast
No matter how hard she tried
She was often told
She wasn’t good enough
She was stupid
Her dreams were dumb
She never understood
Why it was okay
For them to put her down
For them to have their own dreams
But not for her to have her own
Every single day
A new bullet took
The old one’s place
But finally
Now she’s freepexels-photo2.jpg
To live her dreams
Her soul is healing
Her dreams are now
She will be okay
No more bullets
Will pierce her again
