I am just a girl

I am just a girl
I put makeup on, and spend hours on my hair just to impress a judgmental world
I keep to myself most of the time, for nobody knows my secrets that lay behind these pale blue-eyes
To start off, I'm not doing so well
My brain replays memories that dwell until it's time for me to burst into tears that are kept in just like a wishing well
I am just a girl, and emotionally unstable to the point where there are markings on my thighs
I often wonder what it would be like if I ever said goodbye
The thing is nobody knows my thoughts, or actions I've done
I hope to keep it that way
I don't want to become the freak that everyone calls a no one
That phrase is powerful, and describes itself in all meaning
Say it once, and you start to believe it
It may not seem like a big deal now, but I am emotionally unstable, for putting that label on me will cradle every other bad thing you put in my head
But remember, I am just a girl, and not doing so well
Every bad thing to say to me will put me deeper into my shell
I can't even yell for help cause if I do, I have to tell everyone what's wrong, and that is a risk I cannot take; that would be my worst mistake
I am just a girl; not important to the world
I hope one day you'll see what you're doing
I am tired of you viewing me as invisible
If you just listen to my words, and how they swirl, you can change your outlook
But remember, I am just a girl.

I feel your pain people make fun of me just because of my freaky flaws
